How did you start your journey?

As a disciple of nose to tail eating, I believe in not wasting anything. Introducing people to new flavors, reinventing classical dishes and sticking to traditions. My cuisine is inspired from my travels all around the world, especially delicious street food and things on sticks! I enjoy to bring out the distinct flavors of each ingredient and showcase the nothing less than the high quality of the products I use. I love showing what I do and teaching along with cooking. Interaction with other people loving food is the best confidence boost and it inspires me to push the limit. If you are brave enough to taste it then I am willing to make it!!!! I am also a TV Food Critic, on "WHATS COOKING UAE" travelling around the UAE, in search of other Chefs pushing limits, trying something new and discovering tastes I have never had before.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I had started cooking at a very young age helping my papou (grandfather) in the kitchen. He used to be a chef for the Greek Navy. From there I started working with my parents in their typical Greek Taverna in Canada. I loved the cuisine, as I grew up with it my whole life, but wanted to learn more, so I then studied the culinary arts and moved to Montreal working with one of the best chefs Fred Morin. He showed me how to make classic home cooking with basic ingredients and making them wow! I learnt more from him than from school. From there I continue to cook a simple, rich, classic cuisine. And not really care what others wanted but cooked what I loved and people followed. Then came many travels and explorations of international cuisines, working in private parties at people's homes, which allowed me to express my talents with new and inventive flavors each day. Restaurants bore me. And when I am asked which is my favorite restaurant.... there is 2 - one is my home of course and the second a small restaurant on a cliff side in Greece where everything you eat has been grown on that very farm , fresh caught fish from the sea and all cooked with no electricity ! Absolute perfection.
