Winner Announced!


Thank you! | figsandfeta.comWell……yesterday afternoon I was informed that I was not chosen as the winner of the Calling All Dreamers competition sponsored by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. A few thoughts:

  • I do believe that everything happens for a reason so I am grateful that I am being watched out for.
  • I do not, however, plan to let my dream of opening a Greek bakery and marketplace rest.  

First thing this morning I began working on a few ideas and options, so please stay  tuned to hear more soon. Being part of this competition was a great experience in so many ways and I greatly appreciate your support and encouragement over these past few months.

Pascha Menu Ideas

Greek Menu Ideas in Celebration of Holy Pascha, or Easter.
