Goats, Wood Worms and Scorpions share the paradise that is the island of Sifnos, Greece, and the summer home of Laura Candris, who hosted a Talks and Tours fundraiser for local scholarships in her home. Close your eyes and picture a white-washed home above the bay with a woman in a caftan blowing in the breeze. A travel log snapshot! And then we heard Laura share her creative and humorous stories of her lifestyle during the summer on an island where cruise ships can’t go.
Greek dishes based on her mother-in-law’s delicious recipes were tasted and recipes provided. A demonstration of her technique for making spinach pies was a highlight. She made it all look so easy.
As of now, almost $800 was raised for scholarships. Thank you, Laura!
