Vivianna Karamanis, originally of North Caldwell and of Greek heritage, is on a mission to introduce Americans to Greek traditions, folkways and foods. So she founded Hellenic Farms and today imports, supplies and distributes some 100 different Greek products – teas, herbs, cookies, dips, housewares and olive oils. “Our aim is … to educate our customers on the health benefits of the Greek products and Grecian gastronomy,” her company’s website, hellenicfarms.com, says.
Well, we know olive oil has significant health benefits, which is one reason to try the olive oils that Karamanis imports — Five Organic and Five Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil, made on a small Greek island. Another: the beautifully designed bottles the oils come in. We’re completely smitten. A great gift for your food-loving and design-loving friends. $45 (Five Organic) and $40 (Five Ultra Premium) at Kings Food Markets in Cresskill, Hillsdale, Midland Park and Ridgewood (kingsfoodmarkets.com) and hellenicfarms.com.
