Get to know me better

Creative and sustainable Chef

My name is Andreas Chrysomallis, I’m from Greece and I’ve been working in Amsterdam as a professional cook for the last 6 years. I studied Finance & Maths, but I always wanted to make people smile with food, so I decided to follow my passion and change my career path a couple of years ago.

I was working as Head Chef at Instock, a restaurant that had the mission to make beautiful meals out of ‘wasted veggies’ - vegetables that would end up in the waste bin because of how they look like while they still taste delicious. Unfortunately, due to Corona, we had to make the difficult decision to shut down the restaurant

This means that i have to start to think creative and the good news is that I’m available to be your private chef at home during these crazy times!

The last couple of years I’ve been working in 5 Star Hotels, Michelin restaurants & fine dining places. In the meantime I’ve also been doing stages at Arzak(***),Heston Blumenthal(**) and completed a 4 Months internship at Noma restaurant**(Νο2 awarded for 2019) in Copenhagen.

Besides that, I’ve been volunteering for 2 years as a chef in a non-profit organization (Taste Before You Waste), based in Amsterdam. We organized weekly dinners for 80-90 people, and by doing this we used vegetables & fruits that normally would’ve been wasted.

Also, I’ve been organizing my own personal project called ΄Fermentation Art΄. I organized over 10 successful workshops.dinners about fermentation and ways to preserve food through lacto fermentation. Due to Covid-19 I haven’t been able to organize more workshops, but I hope to continue soon when Corona measurements allow us to. There’s still so much to teach about homemade Kimchi, Miso, different kind of krauts, pickles, sourdough bread, Kombuchas and so much more!

I love life and since I found my passion it is my goal to learn something more about it every day. This makes me happy and gives me a lot of energy to explore, travel (post-corona) and work hard, despite these uncertain times. I am a very happy, passioned cook with great skills, I have a high feeling of responsibility and eye for detail.

I’m looking forward to meet you!

Chef Andreas's reviews

4,8/ 5

If you have the opportunity to invite Andreas to cook for you and your friends, don't hesitate for one single second. I had the pleasure to invite Andreas to my home to cook for 8 people, and it's been the best decision I made. He's incredibly proficient and his cooking skills are beyond expectations. In preparation for the evening Andreas and I discussed the four course menu in detail - with many options for me to select from. At all times Andreas was highly professional and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend working with him.

Andreas was spectacular! 5 stars for a very thoughtfully unique and tasty combination of flavours. You can tell he is super passionate about experimenting with food in different ways. He also provided a nice list of wines to pair. The biggest bonus was how my kitchen was left sparkling with all dishes put back already. Highly recommend his services to make any dinner party happy.
