Tess Georgakopoulos has been cooking for well over 40 years since she was roughly 6 years old. Born into a Greek family, the art of cooking traditional meals using ones senses rather than recipes and measurements was passed on from one generation to the next. Her father was also a trained chef who brought the magic of food to life in another form on the weekends as they cooked elaborate family meals together. Food prepared from the heart, with ones own hands and creativity was, and continues to be an expression of love in her home. As a skilled home cook and baker, Tess enjoys creating original recipes for her family and friends. Sweet, savory, or doughy, she enjoys experimenting and creating in the kitchen daily. Pressure-cooking with a stovetop cooker has been a part of her culinary repertoire for over 25 years. Tess is creating new recipes and reinventing traditional ones using the Instant Pot, which is taking her pressure-cooking to another level! She has been teaching both in-person and on-line cooking classes through community education for a number of years having worked with numerous public school districts in and around the Twin Cities. Tess has recently started writing her first cookbook, and her food blog is also in the works! Some of her creations can be seen on her Facebook page @dishitupgood https://www.facebook.com/dishitupgood/ or on her Instagram Feed: Dish it up Good.
