About

Having lived most of my life in the southernmost island of Greece and by extension Europe and in the center of the Mediterranean, Crete, the gourmet of influence is my base of my recipes mostly. In my travels around Greece and the world at large discovered cooking and baking techniques, ingredients, herbs and spices. My knowledge and helped them to have incorporated the ingredients of the world in the Cretan cuisine and creative beyond traditional Cretan prescriptive where I worked in my first steps began to create original and delicious recipes based on this cuisine of Crete where the language is called the fusion of gourmet .

The island of Crete is rich in production of raw materials and cooking even richer in sweet or savory culinary delights based on these ingredients, and studies with universities worldwide for the healthiest diet in the world worthy of holding the reigns of the kitchen better than other. This made me to create recipes that are unique in taste and originality since it has the best foundation for such a venture.

My recipes are made mostly for domestic use and require a considerable time preparing most of them and not use a kitchen restaurant, a mistake that many chef who present to the public restaurant recipes for home use. And all these years because the preparation and cleanliness is a primary factor in the firing process.

As a contemporary Minoan origin so which place she loves and honors the Cretan tradition of hospitality, I present my technical friends who love me and make me the honor to visit my website and try my recipes. Although you’re one of those feel free to browse my blog begging you to respect copyright of my recipes.
