The National Hellenic Museum will be closed to the public from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM on Friday, June 16 due to a private event.
As part of Spice Month, Diane Kochilas will present a virtual talk on mastic, an important spice native to the Greek island of Chios. Joining her will be NHM’s Director of Research and Content, Katherine Kelaidis. The talk will be available for on-demand viewing on the our website and YouTube channel, starting Monday, December 4. Additionally, a second Spice Month conversation on spice routes in the Byzantine Empire will be presented live by Kelaidis as part of the ongoing public NHM Discussions series. This event will be streamed online on Tuesday, December 12 at 7 p.m. CST. Free registration is required at NHM’s Eventbrite.
Throughout the month of December, NHM will also give away copies of Kochilas’s popular cookbook My Greek Table: Authentic Flavors and Modern Home Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours. Guests can enter to win a copy by signing up for NHM emails and/or following the museum’s social media accounts on Facebook (@NationalHellenicMuseum), Twitter/X (@HellenicMuseum), and Instagram (@HellenicMuseum).
