That’s a great idea! A Greek dinner around the world with people eating their Greek dinner, posting about it and uploading their photos on social media. The event is scheduled for January 15th 2014. The idea is to promote Greek culture.
Everyone is invited to virtually join the event and it’s quite easy!
All you need to do is
Cook your Greek dinner at home, invite friends if you like or go out enjoy Greek dinner.
Then share your photos and/or stories from dinner or just ReTweet and Share others’ stories and pictures.
You can connect to the even via social media
Read below what organizer Keri Douglas wrote on her website 9 Muses News :
Everyone is invited on January 15th for a Greek dinner with friends, family and even some new friends. Partners to this initiative will host a dinner – one person, two persons or more; use Greek products to create Greek dishes; share a photo or two of their endeavor; share a recipe; Tweet their experience or favorites and then RT (reTweet) others who are sharing their dinner party under the #GreekDinner and #EatGreek.
The goal is to celebrate Greek cuisine and promote amazing people, authors, chefs, businesses who are connected to Greece.
Why? Well, why not? Who doesn’t love authentic Greek olives, olive oil, real feta, yogurt, honey, oregano and healthy cuisine.
Personally, when our family lived in Greece after being evacuated from Beirut, the Sunday afternoon dinner at the neighborhood taverna was the highlight of the week. The music played was always joyous. The big wooden bowl filled with yogurt, walnuts and honey dribbled on the top at the end of dinner was the treat. There was a magic around the table at the taverna.
So, January 15th Greek Dinner Around the World is to honor your Greek heritage, culture and connection to Greece.
