A few words from the Chef...
"I started from Kranidi, Argolis at a time when gastronomy in our country was in its embryonic form, when the forms of catering were very limited and the only good restaurants were located in central hotels in Athens."
"Every cook, who respects himself, and has been working, like me, for 35 years in kitchens, has acquired a way of thinking, and his own philosophy of work, and thus an attitude of life. These principles follow me in the shops I work with."
"Cuisine and catering for me is a way of life."
"The number one goal was, is and will be taste, not impressing, but that doesn't mean we have to make everything simple or simplistic."
"The shops must serve the culinary arts, but they must also be financially viable."
"These principles, along with the good cooking practices he espouses, he has been trying for 20 years to pass on to generations of his students, promising young chefs, many of whom have gone on to serious careers."
