1911Many years ago, in 1911, great grandfather Giannis Anagnostopoulos decides to return home from America. Giannis and his beloved Penelope decide to get married and use their savings to open a little tavern. The tavern, that the Germans repeatedly destroyed during the war, operated for 70 years, from 1912 to 1982, and was located on the old national highway between Argos and Tripoli. The location named Kolosourtis is renowned for its beautiful views and the dangerous road turns.
1916In 1916 grandfather Takis Anagnostoupoulos is born. He and his brother Giorgos will grow up helping their parents run the family business. A few years after the end of the war, in 1951, he will get married to grandma Lela, a dynamic and spirited woman. The newly-wed couple renames the tavern to “Zithestiatorion Takis”. They will welcome their firstborn, George, in 1952 but their family will grow even more when Popi and Giannis will be born a few years later. The entire family will help run the tavern creating unforgettable moments for many decades serving their specialties, Goat Soup, and Homemade Bread.
1916-1982The menu featured: Traditional goat soup, pasta with lamb stew in tomato sauce, lamb with potatoes slow-cooked in the wood-fired oven as well as boiled wild greens where some of our guests' favorites. Fasolada and freshly baked bread were fan favorites during the winter. The menu was completed by fresh yogurt served in clay pots and wine from the family’s stock served from the barrel. The wood oven, family wine, telephone booth, black and white TV as well as the Jukebox were some of the restaurant’s amenities. It also featured an outdoor space with an amazing serene view that could fit 30 tables where one could meet the establishment’s main attractions. A young donkey and a canary. The warm atmosphere and the passion of the family were the values that would help the little tavern spread countless moments of love, joy, and laughter for many years.
1995The third generation. Giorgos Anagnostopoulos and his talented wife Helen, create Home Food Catering in Athens. The main characteristics of the first incarnation of our catering service were the homemade Greek recipes and the cordial communication with our clients.
1995-2016Throughout its course, outside of social events, Home Food Catering was the preferred catering service for many TV productions, series, and ads that our generation grew up watching. Through 25 years of constantly evolving, our catering service has reached it’s most mature form during the last 3 years.
