My name is Spiri and I am a Melbourne-based writer. I live with my husband, two children, and a bunch of pets. I love cooking, eating, reading, talking, laughing, playing, writing and daydreaming. Not always in that order.
About this blog
The idea for the Tribal Tomato was born about a decade ago. I was reminiscing about an early experience of eating a tomato in my mum's village in Greece. The tomato was on a wedge of homebaked bread, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with oregano. I was surrounded by people I loved, eating good food that was grown in the soil around me. I remember feeling very self-contained, and yet a part of something bigger than myself. As I was only seven, I couldn't really articulate it at the time. Now that I can, I am writing this blog to capture the sentiments reflected in that memory. The Tribal Tomato is about food, family and connection.
