Meet Alexandra

I’m Alexandra (sometimes referred to as Sandra, Zandra, Sandy, Mom, Prez). I’m the founder, recipe-creator, self-taught cook and baker, food-stylist, photographer, and writer behind Figs & Feta.

I’m a third generation Greek-American with years of on-the-job training in the kitchen with my grandmothers and parents as my greatest teachers. I live on the West Coast with my husband, three growing boys and a chocolate Havanese named Wookiee.

I started Figs & Feta in 2013 looking to share Greek recipes and time-saving tips under the sub-title of Greek Made Simple. In 2017 I realized I had basically baked and cooked myself into a virtual kitchen corner. I found myself walking down a very narrow path-restricted to only Greek recipes- which I found restricted my creativity in the kitchen. Feeling unchallenged, I decided to change things up a little. Without the restriction of keeping things Greek all the time, I’m simply focusing on sharing great, fun, delicious recipes.

Thanks for stopping by. Suggestion, request or ideas? Please send me an email– I’d love to hear from you!
