A LONDON Cypriot has made unlikely stars out of his parents by featuring them making meatballs in a four-minute clip on the internet site youtube.
The clip of the unusual ‘cookery programme’ with its own unique Cypriot style, has proved hugely popular on youtube with 6,000 views to date. In fact ‘Greek Meatballs’ has proved so popular that a sequel ‘Stuffed Vine Leaves’ was added on Friday.
The original clip, posted a month ago, features Andreas Theodolou, 76 and his wife Christina, 69, engaging in amusing unscripted and unrehearsed banter in Greek while telling viewers in English how to make meatballs.
The couple have lived in the UK since the late sixties and have been together over 50 years, which makes their interaction all the more engaging.
