The joie de vivre with food, music and dance.
My parents emigrated from Greece to Montréal where I was born and raised. The Greek zest for life is what I enjoy most about our culture. I have lived in almost every country in the Mediterranean as well as Portugal, and, like Socrates, consider myself a citizen of the world.
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.
What a great gang of people. Always good food, great wine and fantastic conversation about who we are, not "what we do" or "what building we live in." One member said it best, "When I wish to exercise my body, I go with my hiking meetup group. When I wish to exercise my mind, I attend EuroProvidence events."
