Being a Greek mother, hospitality is a big part of her culture as it is taught from generation to generation and mother to mother. The household was always warm, ready to accommodate and feed or treat any unexpected visitors, hence the Greek word “philoxenia” ( philos = friend + xenos = stranger ). The willingness to welcome even a stranger as a friend.
Drinks, treats and sweets were always “hidden” in the kitchen from the kids of the house, that made it the biggest challenge for them to discover.
