Mama Tassia has been pleasing people with her delicious Greek food for over 30 years…
Firstly from the family’s 300 seater restaurant on the Island of Zakinthos (Zante) and for the last 10 years here in Sheffield at The Greedy Greek Deli.
We have a very extensive menu of authentic Greek Cuisine and Zakinthos plays an important role in the style of Greek food we serve. The Island was occupied by many different nationality’s over the years and they have all had an input & influence on the food, none more so than the Venetians – hence the presence of powerful herbs and garlic which grow in abundance there.
The Venetians were so impressed with the Island’s flora and fauna that they named it “Zante il Fioro de Lavante“ (or “Zakinthos – the Flower of the East”).
Mama Tassia & her team lovingly make all of the dishes that we sell and Tassia ensures that the flavours are ‘just right’…
As she could not get the correct flavours from the herbs available here she has them brought from Greece. All the sauces we have are made from scratch with fresh produce just the way Mama would make them in Zakinthos – as if she were cooking for her own family.
Fresh produce is very important to ensure authentic flavour and texture and she will let our suppliers know in no uncertain terms she is not happy if they try to supply ingredients that are not up to her high expectations. She now see’s all our customers as her extended family and like most Greek ladies, she is very proud of her food.
