Watch Diane on the “Oprah” of Greece, Eleni Menegaki, making tomato-feta risotto. She uses “Carolina” rice, which is a medium-grain, starchy variety actually grown in Greece!
Diane shared her expertise in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with Harvard University Dining Services and with the Harvard Food Literacy Project. Read the recent Harvard Gazette article about her three days at the university in April.
Martha Rose Shulman, the renowned Healthy Recipes columnist for the NYT, adapted Diane’s Winter Tomato Soup from the Country Cooking of Greece in the NYT, March 5th, 2013. Check it out!
