Get to know me better

The relationship between art and cuisine and the accident have changed my worldview!

One of the most important Greek chefs of the new generation.

The beginning of Thodoris Papanikolaou in cooking, as strange as it may sound, is related to painting: " It was one of my favorite habits, ever since I can remember. I sketched, painted, and made stencils and graffiti. Anything you can imagine I did. At some point, though, I saw the wave of gastronomy that was coming and somehow I thought I could put it together ." Something that, without a doubt, shows in his dishes.
