Photo of the Day: Global Greek Chef Maria Loi Loves Greece... and it Shows, even in New York!

Η αγαπημένη μας Μαρία Λόη αγαπάει την Ελλάδα...και το δείχνει!

It's snowing heavily in New York and as our amazing Global Greek Chef Maria Loi walked past the winter wonderland near the New York Hilton earlier today she couldn't resist the temptation to advertise
not her restaurant, or her book, 
but her homeland, and ours, 
on the snow covered cars!
Bravo Maria mas! 

Like us, you love Greece... and it shows! 

  and because you didn't advertise yourself, 
we will do it for you...

Don't forget...
