I am Sofia, a.k.a. Auntie Sofia. Greek gal in a London kitchen, working, studying, learning every single day.
The Digital Scullery story began in 2009 when Manolis, aka Sykofantis Bastoyni , decided to charm me by explaining his culinary preferences (it works, try it).
From friendly chat to lovely discussions there seemed to be this suspicion that perhaps I couldn’t cook a Turkish dish that Manolis loves. Well, I’m not a crazy Greek for nothing. I grabbed my sharp knife, found a nice little camera and made the first video in Greek where I cook Hünkar Beğendi. At the time I only had my Greek personal blog and I published the video there. As time passed I made more and more videos so I started Digital Scullery, to only blog about food.
The Greek side of Digital Scullery now has recipes, photos and little food notes from me and a whole lot of friends.
In December 2010 Mummy Despina, Katerina and our Prophit Estarian got their own accounts and pages.
In November 2011 I opened the English side of the blog, translating some of the Greek content and creating some new content just for this version.
Everyone at Digital Scullery believes in homemade food and the magic of everyday cooking. Without any studies. Without being chefs. Just like we cook for our family, for our friends, for our loved ones. With plenty of good humor, laughter, mistakes and disasters. Like any normal person who cooks.
If you love to cook, if you love to have friends over, if you like the personal stories behind the recipe, this is what you’ll find in Digital Scullery.
If you love food, if you remember some recipes with affection, if you are seeking that lovely feeling of sharing a feast with family and friends, this is what you’ll find in Digital Scullery.
Simple, honest and personal recipes, without complicated bits, without chefs, without trained cooks. Just some Greeks (and possibly others) enjoying the whole thing.
