How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?
I've been cooking and creating new dishes and flavors since I was 13. This was my hobby and need for creativity. After 9 years, I started working as a cook and studying culinary arts at a Swiss college, the Alpine center. When I graduated, I started working at top restaurants in Athens for 7 years with some of the best chefs in Greece. From 1998~2000, I was the Head Chef of one of the top 18 restaurants in Athens (Alpha Guide). I was one of the 30 finalists for the best chef in Greece. From 1995 until 2011, I was working at top restaurants in Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, and Inverness Scotland. During the last several years, I've working as a private chef for VIPs around the world and this has given me the opportunity to travel & use some of the best ingredients on earth, pushing my culinary passion to the edge. Traveling the world with both hats of Chef and a Diver, enables me to open my horizons to a different and tasteful cultures, seducing me to new culinary worlds. Keep enjoying life and maybe we will meet somewhere somehow!!!
