About Us

Hi, I am Phil Harris, and my partner is Darren Rockhold. We have been friends since we were 4 years old. I have loved to cook for most of my life. I enjoy seeing satisfied faces as they enjoy food at my table. Most of my recipes come from one of 4 places.

The first is my grandmother (Yiayia) from my Dads side. She and my Papoo (grandfather) came over from Greece many years ago. She brought with her a talent for cooking and baking. I remember when I was a young child, helping her in the kitchen, and as time went on, actually doing the work as she guided me in the finer aspects of cooking Greek foods and pastries. My recipe book is filled with her secrets and creations. I never make a Greek dish without thinking of how much I love and miss her. Darren loved her dearly also, as she told him, he too could call her, Yiayia. I was not so fond of that idea. :).

The second source for my recipes is my Sitto (grandmother) on my Moms side. She and my Jidee (grandfather) came from Lebanon together, bringing with her a ton of wonderful old-world recipes. From chicken & rice to cabbage rolls, Kibbee, etc., there was always tons of food to eat when we visited Sitto and Jodee. There were 9 Shadid children, and incredible food was always ready for every meal.
