Olympia Provisions owners, Elias and Michelle Cairo, are hosting a traditional Greek Easter dinner this Sunday, April 8. 

Like any typical Greek celebration, there will be copious amounts of food, wine and Ouzo, dancing to the bouzouki, egg cracking and plate smashing.

John Cairo, Elias and Michelle’s father, grew up in a tiny Greek village and moved to America in his late twenties. He brought his Greek ethos and family recipes with him and shared that with all of his children. Every year the Cairo family celebrated Greek Easter, and every year it was centered around spending time with family and eating delicious food. Michelle and Elias are carrying on that tradition with their Greek Easter Dinner at Olympia Provisions NW.

“Everyone should be able to experience it once in their life, we want to share the games and recipes we enjoyed with our dad and family with our entire community” said Michelle.

The dinner will feature the dishes they had as children, such as Tsoureki and Kleftiko, and some of the Cairos favorite games!
