January WWRC Member Mtg at Gardens of Salonica

January 31, 2018 1:16 PM | Rebecca Griffith (Administrator)

Here's to each of you having a WONDERFUL start to 2018!

We had another great turnout of 38 Women Who Really Cook members and guests at this month's meeting on a predictably cold, but gorgeous evening on January 4th.

Our location was at none other than Gardens of Salonica, where owner (&WWRC founding member), Anna Christopherides hosted us at their 27 year old Greek restaurant in Northeast Minneapolis.

Anna started us off on a Greek New Year's toast with champagne that she treated us to.

There was a wonderful selection of local, organic, & made-from-scratch delights, including savory & sweet. ALL of the food and nourishment that Anna provided, left a lasting impression on the quality & sourcing of ingredients. Deeply flavorful!

Anna also fulfilled our curiosity about the ups & downs of being a restaurant owner over the years as well as having always embraced local & organic before it became a movement. She also talked about recent ideas to implement to stay afloat regarding the Minneapolis minimum wage increase. This is a woman who lives authentically and calmly works through the ebbs & flow of life. Anna's truly passionate about what she does and is truly inspiring to listen to.
