Chelekis Recipes Through the Years
by Compiled by Denise Gorant Gliwa
A book compiled by the relatives of the Chelekis family originally from the area of Sparta, Greece. Many are originally recipes from Greece, while others are American favorites! Enjoy.
Katie, I wish I could help you. I am sure there is some relation, but I do not know of them. My grandfather Chelekis was James. My Aunt Bessie Chelekis Canelos (96) and my mother Cleo Chelekis Gorant (90) are still alive and I will ask them. Can you send me your real e-mail so I don't have to go through BLURB. Mine is email@example.com. Thanks.

The photos in the book were very surprising, seeing people in there that look like me and my father. I remember Yaya's Easter bread. She would put a silver coin inside. My dad always got the slice with the coin. Very good recipe.I'm looking for anyone who knows about my family. I'm Katie Chelekis. My yaya was Vasiliki Chelekis. Also known as Bessie. I have an Uncle Louis.
