I was born in Thessaloniki, most famous for its tasty temptations of the Greek cuisine. I grew up surrounded by my family that had a mutual love and interest in food. I would often help my grandfather tend to his olive trees, assist in the preparation of the olive oil and wash the grapes, freshly picked that day from my Grandfather’s field. My grandmother from Pontos, carried all of the knowledge of the Eastern cuisine and she is still a fantastic cook, I learned a lot from watching her in the kitchen and passionately took note of all the family recipes. Very often I would fish with my father and spend evenings tasting the fresh sea treasures of the Greek waters. I would spend hours listening and learning about the different tastes and textures of each one. After being brought up with fresh foods and genuine experiences, whenever I travel, endeavors to find the local hotspots of that city. It’s invigorating to experience another culture so intimately, it electrifies all my five senses and ultimately I end up discovering the most delicious, traditional foods. I strongly believe that choosing good food is a matter of experience and now I strive to provide similar experiences to my clientele. I have spent over two years searching for authentic Greek restaurants, cafes and food markets popular with the local Athenians so that the tourists of Greece can feel the true Athenian vibe and eat the dishes that have been proudly passed through the generations.
