Chef Diane Kochilas

In Greek culture, food is so much more than sustenance—it’s about taking time to enjoy family, celebrating the local harvest, and embracing deep traditions. Meet Chef Diane Kochilas and experience her flair for fusing the sweetness of honey, the indulgent creaminess of Greek cheeses, the airiness of Phyllo, and the savory flavors of meat and fish, with spices and colors to awaken your palate. Ah, and Greek wine!

Chef Diane Kochilas

Diane Kochilas, celebrity chef, TV cooking show host, cookbook author, and cooking school owner, has been at the forefront of bringing healthy, delicious Greek cuisine to a wide international audience for many years. Her latest project My Greek Table, is a 13-part cooking-travel series on public television about Greece and Greek cuisine.
