Recently my wife’s aunt Barbara was featured on a new online cooking show in her hometown of Queens, New York: Cooking with Granny. On the 11-minute video, she shows us how to make an authentic Greek octopus stew, and even shows us how to shop for just the right octopus at her local seafood market. Barbara was born on the Greek island of Paros and immigrated to New York as a young girl. Her eventual husband, John Aliprantis, was also a native of Paros, and a great fan of octopus stew. Barbara learned this recipe from her mother-in-law.
