Falafel, spanakopita, tiropita, baklava and ouzo greeted book lovers at the launch of My Big Fat Greek Taverna, at Exclusive Books Constantia, on Wednesday November 29. Author Costa Ayiotis, the lawyer and diplomat who opened Limonia with his wife, Christine, and some lifelong friends, a lemon-throw from Hout Bay Beach in 1997, was in conversation with Eva Mazza, the author of Sex, Lies & Stellenbosch.
