Ivy is a lady with class.  She is a Greek-Cypriot, living in Greece for the past thirty years.   Ivy grew up in Limassol, Cyprus, which is a beautiful island, of Greek culture, in the Eastern Mediterranean.  When she got married to a Greek, they decided to move to Greece. Her passion for cooking started by watching her mother and helping her in the kitchen, back in Cyprus, where she grew up. When she stopped working, she wanted to rewrite her old recipes, as the notebooks she had were torn and all greasy after so many years of use.  She decided to copy them on the computer so that she could give a copy to all her children.Her specialties are healthy Greek and Cypriot dishes.  Ivy has expanded Aegean Flavours with other hearty, sophisticated and elegant meals, which fit with our taste and adapted to the Greek way of cooking always cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and using local Greek ingredients such as Greek herbs and spices or Greek cheeses.
