Olympia Provisions owners to host a Greek Easter dinner at Olympia Provisions NW.
Portland, OR (March 26th, 2018) – On April 8th, Elias and Michelle Cairo, siblings and co-owners of Olympia Provisions, will host a traditional Greek Easter dinner at Olympia Provisions NW. Like any typical Greek celebration, there will be copious amounts of food, wine and Ouzo, dancing to the bouzouki, egg cracking and plate smashing.
John Cairo, Elias and Michelle’s father, grew up in a tiny Greek village and moved to America in his late twenties. He brought his Greek ethos and family recipes with him and shared that with all of his children. Every year the Cairo family celebrated Greek Easter, and every year it was centered around spending time with family and eating delicious food. Michelle and Elias are carrying on that tradition with their Greek Easter Dinner at Olympia Provisions NW. “Everyone should be able to experience it once in their life, we want to share the games and recipes we enjoyed with our dad and family with our entire community” said Michelle. The dinner will feature the dishes they had as children, such as Tsoureki and Kleftiko, and some of the Cairos favorite games!

About Olympia Provisions
Olympia Provisions, an authentic and house-made charcuterie and meats company based in Portland, Oregon, began as Oregon’s first USDA-certified salumeria and now offers food-lovers five Portland restaurant locations and online product availability nationwide. Salumist and owner, Elias Cairo, grew up first generation Greek-American, with a father who made charcuterie at home. After five years in Switzerland under master chef Annegret Schlumpf, Cairo completed a chef apprenticeship. Utilizing the finest ingredients, he developed his skills and passion for making charcuterie, and the experience affirmed his beliefs – handmade is better. Back in Portland, Cairo set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct old world technique that’s seldom seen in America.
