“My dad is sending olives and tapenades to me next week,” said Tsagias. “I love the tapenades and jams and the sundried tomatoes he grows are amazing. Many people want balsamic vinegars so he is going to send me white as well as the dark.”

Their spices come from different regions of Greece but the traditional sweets are locally sourced.

“I have been going to this bakery in Greektown on the Danforth since I was a kid,” she said. “It’s called Athena Bakery and I wouldn’t trust anyone else.”

Tsagias was born in Toronto in 1970. Her parents, Evagelos and Loukia Tsagias, as well as her older sister, Mada Tsagias-Papadakos, were born in Athens.

They moved to Canada in the late 1960s.

Her mother is a schoolteacher, who taught Greek while living in Canada and now teaches English in Greece.

Her father is a mechanic, who owned a number of garages in the Toronto area.

“If it wasn’t for my dad I wouldn’t be doing this,” said Tsagias. “He has always been an entrepreneur so I guess I have that in me.”
