She studied at Kingston University, is a retired banker and a step-grandmother. In 2019, Irini won MasterChef in the first all-female final seen on the show. Having attended a course in January 2020, Irini is also now an olive oil sommelier.

Reviews

You can learn cooking technique. What you cannot put into somebody is absolute love and passion. And Irini is just bursting with it! It's from the heart, every time she cooks.--Gregg Wallace, MasterChef episode, 2019
This is my favourite cookbook of the year. [Irini's] approach to cooking is celebratory. It's about flavour, texture and presentation, of course, but it is also about emotional nourishment: love and family, conversation and laughter, hearts and minds. Anyone who says they don't like sharing plates needs to read Tzortzoglou's words, make her recipes, and enjoy her food. A total joy from start to finish.--Russell Norman
Irini brings us the tastes and smells of Greek food, without having to actually hop on a plane. Discover sun-soaked dishes, from the simple to the more complex, in this wonderful celebration of all things Greek.--Liz Earle Wellbeing Magazine
An ode to Greek gastronomy--Radio Times
A beautiful book, oozing with the true flavours of Greece.--Anthony Horowitz
Gorgeous, easy-cook summer suppers with all the sunshine flavours of the Med.--YOU magazine
A sunny, satisfying read.--Daily Mail, Christmas Cookbook Roundup 2020
Completely mouthwatering, elegant and celebratory.--Anna Chancellor
Tzortzoglou's warm personality pervades recollections of her father playing his bouzouki, olive oil decanted into ceramic pytharia pots, and of her mother using the village's communal wood-fired oven to bake. She shows that there is a lot more to Greek cuisine than the dishes we associate with summer holidays--Daily Telegraph
Sophisticated, modern take on traditional Greek fare--The Journal Newcastle
What a gorgeous book! The recipes and the beautiful photos had me immediately transported to the beautiful island of Crete. If only I could hop on a plane; cooking the recipes in my kitchen will be the next best thing.--Rachel Knoo
Glorious and sumptuous. From the simplest dishes through to the more complex, Irini totally captures the gastronomy of Greece.--Victoria Hislop

Greek food has a very special place in my heart as I spent some very enjoyable early years of my career working in a Greek restaurant in Southampton! Under The Olive Tree is a treasure trove of personal and factual information about the food of Greece and its islands. Irini's love and passion for Greek ingredients as well as for values associated with food such as nurture, sharing and hospitality are infectious.
