Get to know me better
I love to cook and I do it with all my love and energy so people get the best food experience with all the aythentic Cretan Flavours !!!!
I am a traditional Cretan and Mediterranean Cook. I love to cook, so people can taste the Greek and Cretan cuisine with local products and flavors that you can only find in Crete. I learned to cook through my grandmother and mother. I keep using small "secrets" and personal touches in my recipes and I am always willing to share those with you.
For me, cooking is...
the best way to share my love for the Cretan cuisine with the people who love to explore the local gastronomy and traditional flavors of Crete
I learned to cook at...
home with my nana when I was 11 years old. I was lucky to get all the family recipes from my grandmother and my mother.

Chef Eleni's reviews
We had a wonderful experience for my husband's birthday with Chef Eleni! The food was outstanding and exactly what we discussed with her in advance. She was very professional and added some thoughtful touches to help celebrate. We would definitely recommend her and this service!

We hired chef Eleni for a private dinner party in Crete and it was amazing. The quality of food was fresh and fragrant and she went above and beyond our expectations. I cannot recommend booking chef Eleni enough you will not be disappointed.
We had vegetarian and fish dishes, which Eleni made sure to have equal amounts of each. She also made a birthday cake for my mums birthday which was beautiful! Probably the nicest cake any of us have ever had!! 10/10 thankypu!!

Booked Chef Eleni for my husband's 50th bjrthday. Birthday boy is vegetarian. Eleni helpes create a menu that provided fabulous options for both vegetarian and meat eaters. Having been in various parts of Greece for over 2 weeks prior to the meal meant we were familiar with many of the dishes but Eleni's meal surpassed our expectations. People's favourite dish varied but the quality and quantity were exceptional. Thoughtful touches like candles for the dessert were greatly appreciated. The kitchen and bbq were left impeccably clean.
This was my first experience with a private chef and I would repeat it without hesitation.
