Aglaia Kremezi is my favorite author of cookbooks.
I have almost all of her books (a couple I believe I don’t have because I loaned them out).
They embellish the library of the chef and have always given me useful advice.
Rarely have I made a recipe of Aglaia’s and not succeeded.
By chance last week, a customer and friend told me that years ago Aglaia came to Loutraki and stayed at his hotel for her summer holidays.
The Agios Efrosinos Tavern is located off the main square of Loutraki. Loutraki is a pleasant seaside town adjoining the city of Corinth.
Not by chance did Michalis, the proprietor and chef, give this exceptional, traditional, Greek restaurant its name; Agios (Saint) Efrosinos is the Patron Saint of cooking.
Michalis, who trained as a chef at some of the top culinary schools, and, has been chef in many well-known Greek tavernas and restaurants, throughout mainland Greece and its islands, had always had a dream, a dream that one day he would own his own restaurant. A place where people could share his incredible passion and nostalgia for healthy, wholesome, home cooked food.
Open everyday from 12:00 to 17:00, except Mondays
