The idea behind Yioryitsa's Backyard is rather straightforward. The bond between a mother and daughter is the subject. They had an unbreakable bond that lasted their entire lives. Stavroula (Voula) Spirea, runs Yioryitsa's Backyard. She wanted to honor her mother Yioryitsa's passion for Greek cuisine after Yioryitsa's passing. The village held high regard for Yioryitsa as a superb cook. Voula's mother taught her how to make traditional Greek food when she was a young girl. Together, they would spend a significant amount of time each day creating traditional Greek village fare, with Voula learning from and being guided by her mother.OUR EVENTS
Today, Voula is utilizing the same recipes to weave a delicious tapestry of traditional comfort cuisine, just like her mother used to.
