Chef Anna’s love of food started when she began working as a server at the young age of 16 at an Italian restaurant on the Greek island, Syros. She went on to study design in Milano, Italy and stayed there for 5 years. Afterwards, she returned to Syros and began working in restaurants. She fell in love with the energy she felt in the kitchen. She opened her own restaurant at the age of 29. She went on to create and operate 3 restaurants over 12 years. This is when her chef career really began. Her passion is Mediterranean cuisine and she loves to cook with open fire. An Argentinian grill and an Italian wood fired oven were incorporated into her restaurant kitchens. During the economic crisis in Greece she moved and worked in restaurants around Europe, London, Copenhagen, Napoli and Malta. Now, back in her hometown, she now works as a freelance private chef in Syros. She owes her success to her parents who taught her the importance of good food and good company. 

Join Chef Anna as she takes you on a cultural journey to discover the foods of Greece. In Greece it is all about Mezé. Italians have antipasti, the Spanish have tapas, the French have canapés, and the Greeks have Mezé. Mezé is a way of living in Greece. They are present in daily life and it’s how they socialize. Chef Anna is looking forward to bringing you into her Greek kitchen and bringing her food into yours.
