The club originally started as a place for all the wives, partners and girlfriends of Greek men (and any other interested folk) to come together and share their comical tales, frustrations, recipes and general philosophy about life with a Greek man.
Since its founding in 2012, the club has expanded into a large community of women (and the odd gent!) who have links to the Hellenic world, whether that be through direct Greek heritage, marriage, business, or travel links.
Cultural understanding is a very important topic in today’s modern society and our club addresses issues such as living with cultural differences, family support and comical themes about life as well as advocating all things Greek.
We effectively act as a networking platform to allow members to socialise with like-minded individuals and help to promote businesses, bloggers, authors and others whose work centres around relevant themes.
Operating on a world-wide basis, our affiliates include Greek wedding, christening and other events companies, mentoring associations, relationship advisers, Greek fashion designers, authors who are either Greek or write about related subjects, Greek food bloggers and many more.
Whilst there is a strong female vibe and featured members include critically acclaimed authors such as Sofka Zinovieff and Eve Makis, as well as My Greek Kitchen‘s Tonia Buxton, The Greek Wives Club are happy to promote supportive gents as well such as the director of Papadopoulos and Sons Marcus Markou and travel writer Harry Bucknall.
So if you want to help get your fellow Grecians out of the kitchen or you yourself are just seeking solace when one too many plates have been smashed, you have come to the right place.
You don’t have to be a Greek wife to join in but you do need to have a sense of humour!
Thank you to everyone who has supported the group and I hope that the initiative will be a great success in helping everyone to network and connect more 🙂
