What do you enjoy most about European culture and why?

The joie de vivre with food, music and dance. In Europe, they work to live, not live to work.

For European citizens, where were you born (city and country)? Did you grow up there? For how many years did you live there?

My parents emigrated from Greece to Montréal where I was born and raised, visiting Greece often. Since 1994, I have lived in almost every country in the Mediterranean (Spain for two years, France for one, Greece for one, Italy for three months), as well as Portugal (one year), and, like Socrates, consider myself a citizen of the world.

These questions are for non European citizens (Americans, Canadians, Asians, South Americans, etc.): Where did you live in Europe? How long did you live there?


What is your favourite dish? This question must be answered.

Favourite is roasted lamb with oregano-lemon potatoes, tomato salad, a loaf of Portuguese bread (for the olive oil in the salad and the lamb drippings). Favourite foods: Spanish chorizo, Portuguese morcilla, prosciutto di Parma, Polish Bigosz.


Ciao tutti! Lived in EU for years. I enjoy blending recipes together from different countries with local products accompanied with good wine.
