Other titles include the iParenting Media award-winning: Loukoumi, Growing up with Loukoumi, Loukoumi's Good Deeds, Loukoumi's Gift and Loukoumi's Celebrity Cookbook. The Cookbook features favorite childhood recipes by over 50 celebrities including Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Matt Lauer, George Stephanopoulos, Betty White, several Disney Channel stars, and many others. The Cookbook has received several awards including two World Cookbook Awards, The Mom's Choice Award for Excellence and The Family Choice Award.

He also sponsors Make a Difference with Loukoumi Day, based on his book Loukoumi's Good Deeds (narrated on CD by Jennifer Aniston and John Aniston), which rallies 20,000 kids each October to do a good deed on national Make a Difference Day. In addition, the winner of the Loukoumi's Celebrity Cookbook recipe contest, Grace LaFountain, cooked her favorite childhood recipe with celebrity chef Cat Cora at Cat's restaurant, Kouzzina, on the BoardWalk in Walt Disney World during the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

Read an Excerpt

The plane took Loukoumi to France. After it landed she walked off in search of her mother. Loukoumi walked all the way to the Eiffel tower, but her mother was nowhere to be found. Loukoumi started to cry. Then all of a sudden a cat named Fistiki came up behind her. "What's the matter?" Fistiki asked. "I lost my family," Loukoumi said, sniffling back the tears. "We were supposed to go home to America, but I got on the wrong plane and now I am lost. I am never going to wander off alone again."
