Traditional Greek Pastries and MOre!

Welcome! Yia Sas!

Mama Ploumitsa's

Traditional Greek Pastries & More!

"Yia Sas", hello everyone, my name is Ploumitsa. I was born in St. George Sikousis Village on the beautiful island of Chios. At 24 years old, I married, immigrated to New York where, in the comfort of my kitchen, I discovered my love for cooking preparing meals for my family!

 

Over the years, I've found cooking to be such a powerful way to connect with others, an expression and exchange of love that transcends barriers and unites people in such a meaningful way. 

 

Cooking helped me overcome one of the most difficult stages of my life, thanks to Jody Scaravella, the visionary owner of famed restaurant Enoteca Maria, who invited me to share the traditional dishes of my country as the "Greek Nonna" of his restaurant, where grandmothers from all over the world run the kitchen.

 

It is my dream to introduce you to the traditional food of my culture and incite your curiosity and imagination. Welcome to my Greek kitchen!

If you would like to see more of my creations, I invite you to my Facebook page at Mama Ploumitsa or you can follow me on Instagram at Ploumitsa's Pastries.

Who is Mama Ploumitsa?

"Yia Sas", hello everyone, my name is Ploumitsa. I was born in St. George Sikousis Village on the beautiful island of Chios, where I grew up with my parents and 3 siblings. From a young age, I really enjoyed watching my mother cook, but because she liked to do all the cooking and baking herself, I wasn't able to spend much time helping out in the kitchen.

 

At 24 years old, I married and immigrated to New York. I didn't know the first thing about cooking, so my husband, also from the village of St. George Sikousis, and his aunt, slowly taught me how to cook the traditional dishes of Greece.  

  

We had 3 children and sent them to Greek American schools so that they would have the opportunity to learn about our heritage, culture and rich history. I stayed at home when my children were young, and in the comfort of my kitchen, preparing our daily meals, is where I discovered my love for cooking the traditional Greek dishes my mother used to make. I looked forward to the recipes my mother would send me with her handwritten letters, as well as our regular telephone calls where food and cooking was always a lively topic of conversation.


Over the years, and through my fair share of mishaps and pleasantly surprising accidents, I learned to recreate the traditional foods and desserts that my mother used to make for me. Relatives and friends would always praise my cooking, and it made me so happy to know that others enjoyed my food so much.  

I've found cooking to be such a powerful way to connect with others, an expression and exchange of love that transcends barriers and unites people in such a meaningful way.

 

It is my dream to celebrate and share this gift, and introduce the traditional Greek dishes of my culture to you.
