Chef Anna

Syros, Greece

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.
