Greek Life available nationally

Greek Life Available Nationally

Welcome to Greek Lifestyle!

Today I’m sharing some really exciting news!

I’m traveling from Adelaide to Canberra via a short stopover in Melbourne, where I’m typing this blog post, sipping peppermint tea, and taking the time to chime in and do a few social media updates. You see, I’m off to Canberra to share the story behind the story of Greek Life, and how this book came to be. I’m so happy to be visiting our Capital city, and meeting the lovely people of Canberra tonight at the Hellenic Club at Woden.

Greek Life book available nationally in AustraliaMy latest exciting news is that Greek Life can now be found in each state and territory in Australia. From Adelaide to Darwin, and Perth to Canberra, and all the cities in between.

Parap Fine Foods in Darwin is the latest addition to where Greek Life can be found. This high quality fine food store is a perfect match for my book.

The Hellenic Club at Woden in Canberra have books available for those living in our Capital City.

In Tasmania, Greek Life can be found at the amazing fine food store Hill Street Grocer, and over in the West, Boffins Books is where the fine people of Perth can get their copies of Greek Life.

All this shows an amazing support for my timeless book Greek Life, that can be found in only some of the best business in Australia. Greek Life continues to sit proudly in homes across our beautiful country, and beyond in cities around the globe. In fact, I’ve just received a phone call from a lady who requires 2 signed copies for her friends, with one being sent Germany!

Thanks for the love, thanks for the support, and thanks for joining the celebration that is Greek Life!

Greek Life – people tell me it’s the best!

Greek Life – people tell me it’s the best!

Welcome to GL!

When I embarked on my self-publishing journey I soon realised that this small business venture of mine as a first time author also needed much focus and dedication to get my book into the right businesses. The types of business that were well know for their great customer service, their professionalism, offering a great mix of genres, and who were quite simply ‘great operators’. I knew intimately, that my book Greek Life was to be stocked in only the best stores in Australia.

With that in mind, I went firstly to the stores that I shopped in here in South Australia, and was overjoyed when these wonderful bookstore managers agreed to stock Greek Life. My list of stockists grew steadily in SA, Victoria, and New South Wales, and before I knew it my first print run had sold out.

I then pondered the idea of a reprint. Well how could I not go down this path with over 200 books on back-order? And so, the second print run, that was slightly delayed due to personal commitments, was eventually delivered a few days before Christmas.

My back orders were filled just in time for the festive season and there was something quite satisfying knowing that I hadn’t let people down. You see, my word is my calling card!

This now gave me the wonderful opportunity to seek stockists in other states in Australia, and soon Greek Life would be stocked in a few more shops in Melbourne, and new markets would be found in Queensland, Tasmania, and WA. I’m delighted that Greek Life can now be found in almost each state and territory within Australia.

My next goal is to have Greek Life stocked in the Northern Territory!  With only limited stock available, it would be wonderful for all people across Australia for whom Greek culture means something, to be able to secure copies of Greek Life for their families, friends, and loved-ones.

Within its pages, readers will go on a remarkable journey with the story of family and migration, and join the unique, beautiful and inimitable celebrations that surround New Years, Easter, Christmas, Love and Other Ceremonies, Births and Baptisms, and Honoring our Loved Ones. At the core is the philosophy of the Greek way of life that encompasses the benefits of the Mediterranean Lifestyle, plus so much more.

Interwoven within its pages, is thought inspiring philosophy and beautiful and sumptuous full colour photography. Greek Life transports readers through a visual and culinary journey like no other!

Greek Life is the perfect gift for birthdays, graduations, kitchen teas, Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, Valentines Day and more. So love the one you’re with, and give the gift that keeps giving.

Eating the Greek way!

The Mediterranean Diet is more than food, it is a lifestyle that encompasses socialising, working, incidental exercise through gardening and dancing, enjoying coffee, oh and a few glasses of wine, eating seasonally, having very little dairy, enjoying seafood, but having limited meat.

It is mostly a vegetarian and vegan way of life especially when observing times of Lent and fasting.

Of course there are times that are celebrated throughout the calendar year, and we all know what that looks like! A Greek Feast, is like no other. Tables set with the most colourful assortment of food usually dressed in olive oil, lemon juice and oregano (or other homegrown herb) , aromatically prepared and slow cooked meats, mouthwatering sweets, wine, the elixir of the gods, and lots of kefi!

So, what are you waiting for? Get your copies of Greek Life at Amazon now and join the celebration that is called Greek Life!

Loving the feedback

I’m simply loving the feedback from my readers of Greek Life. Here’s one that pretty well sums up my vision for Greek Life. I couldn’t have said it better!!

‘I had the pleasure of attending a book reading and meeting the lovely Author of Greek Life , Eugenia Pantahos. I sat listening to her stories of life growing up in a Greek household in the Diaspora, and it hit me now profoundly linked and similar our lives and experiences are.

What you need to know NOW about Greek Life

Greek Life – the perfect book to learn about Greek culture and traditions

For a Greek family cooking , and eating with others is a huge part of our culture and heritage. It is also Linked to our sense of Philotimo.

Philotimo is a Greek word that is without definition, but impacts the world beyond imagination. The word philotimo comes from the Greek root words “filos,” meaning friend, and “timi,” meaning honor. When Greeks have food , there is life and kefi , what we have in our homes is always on offer to others , no matter how much or how little we have.

Greek Life began as an idea to collaborate into some sort of book format Eugenia’s recipes , and those of her mother. Something to pass onto her three daughters , as well as other family members.

With that idea she formed a beautiful collection of recipes , marking every occassion in the Greek Calendar. Honouring every tradition of the rich Hellenic Culture . Something I for one value greatly and I know future generations will benefit from her explanations , simple recipes and stunning photographs !

Each section of the book starts with a philosophy & makes reference to that seasons celebrations. Each recipe has its own ‘life ‘ and explanation , so you as a reader can understand and appreciate the Greek traditions and customs behind the celebration.

You will find everything from ‘Wedding Bread ‘ to ‘koliva’ in this book , and even references to certain plants and greens we find in our gardens that are used in our cooking and salads.

With Greeks as we know , we don’t really care what you do , but rather ‘ where are you from ?’ . I was curious given I recognised Eugenia’s surname as my mothers relatives from her village. I finally mustered up the courage to put my hand up asking a question that led to where her in laws descended from , and it was indeed my Mothers village ! I so love this connection with Greeks.
Greek Life is so much more than a cookbook, given so much of Eugenia’s life and family are intertwined with it. It is also a wonderful reference for Greek Customs and way of life. It sits proudly on my coffee table , thank you Eugenia for writing such a beautiful Anthology for us to pass on to our children. – Eleni Tsemtsidis
