TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City – Greece

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Greek restaurant »Taverna Ousia«

“My parents moved to a foreign country, and I was born here, but they did not want my brother and me to forget where we came from. That's why they taught us the Greek culture – the language, the food,” Athanasios Gortsas tells us when we meet him for the series “50 Kitchens, one city” at the Taverna Ousia. The ancient Greek tradition plays an important role in the restaurant, which is specialized on Mezedes, small dishes that have a great advantage: you can try something of everything. Typical Greek is also the lamb shoulder in red wine sauce, which we have prepared together. One eats it with fresh vegetables.
