A Taste of Greece Edit
In July 2016, A Taste of Greece was published internationally by TeNeues Media. The illustrated cookbook was coordinated by Princess Tatiana and edited by the food writer Diana Farr Louis. It is a non-profit publication whose sales benefit the Greek charity Boroume ("we can!"), supporting food supplies both to refugees in Greece and to Greeks suffering poverty due to the country's economic crisis.
Prince Nikolaos's engagement to Tatiana Blatnik, with whom he has been in a long term relationship, was announced on 28 December 2009, by the office of King Constantine in London.
