Yiam is my dream come true.
20 years ago my cooking hobby became my profession.
In 1993 we decided to leave Athens and settle in a small village surrounded by good farmland and this opened my eyes to a new world.
I was a happy mother of three boys that became a self taught farmer.
My books, as much as my welly boots, were my tools of learning all about the greek soil, the fresh farm produce of every season and how traditional greek cooking could work wonders with all these treasures… I fell in love with the smells of a wet field and freshly cut fruit and veggies, this became my aromatherapy.
All this natural goodness fed my young family, then all our good friends, then friends were asking for a jar of this and a box of that… and so was born yiam…
My cooking pots and pans grew to a small workshop and this grew to a full size cottage industry.
The little yiam jars with my trademark cooking pot on them have been the life of my family and myself for the past 20 years.
In my pots and pans I cook what I like to eat and feed to my children (by now handsome young men) and all that I share with my friends.
I am AVRA PANOUSOPOULOU and I welcome you to my world.
