Profile

Chef Michael

Cooking has always been very important for me. I remember myself as a child visiting grandmother Efterpi (with her delicious baked lamb in the oven) and grandmother Georgia (with her delicious kalitsounia).

They were always in the kitchen with an apron on, preparing local dishes while passionately talking about the recipes, the nutritional values, the flavours, the smells and the secrets of the Cretan cuisine. I vividly remember that when I was visiting my grandmothers as a child, it felt like travelling in a magical world full of tastes and aromas. I was thrilled by these unique sensations and every time my interest and curiosity grew stronger. I was very curious to know everything about the recipes that turned simple raw materials to culinary miracles.

As an adult today, I have turned my curiosity into a profession with the hope of being able to offer the sensations I once experienced through my work, to all my guests and I strive on this daily.

Chef Christos

My food philosophy is simple: The time for Greek food is now!

It is my strong belief that the foundation of the Greek cuisine lies in its simplicity and the 3 ‘f’s, as I like to call them, freshness, fragrance and family. Family style is our style, everyone shares everything. No complicated sauces, just good quality of fresh ingredients, correct use of flavourings (herbs) and spices and the famous Greek olive oil.

Greek food is the mother of all Mediterranean diets: historically rich, fantastically delicious, and supremely nutritious. My life’s mission as a chef is to bring my deep knowledge and passion for the island’s healthiest food to the visitors of Crete.

Cretan cuisine strength lies in the quality and freshness of its ingredients, the use of wild greens, and purity of taste and the copious use of olive oil, Crete’s liquid gold.

The nutritional advice points to Greek food and the rich tapestry and lore of Greek culinary traditions as the perfect way to eat: simple, healthy, delicious and convivial.

 

Services

Designed to give a unique, modern and stylish dining experience. The Chef duo of Michael and Christos brings a restaurant style dining experience to your very own home or holiday accommodation in Chania and Rethymno.

Michael and Christos bring everything needed to serve you and your guests including plates, cutlery and specialist cooking equipment and clean everything up after as if they were never there. Enjoy a night of good company and fine food.

 

Philosophy

Crete has one of the oldest and most palatable culinary traditions in the world, a tradition of flavours, fragrances, ingredients and styles, which starts from prehistoric times and reaches up to today.

Our philosophy is based on the simplicity of the ingredients as for people of Crete, the secret of longevity is very simple.

Cretans are fed with products produced by their land, which means that they eat plenty of home-grown vegetables, herbs, pulses and fruit and they flavour their food with herbs and plants from the mountains of the island such as oregano and basil while almost always accompany the food with wine from local vineyards. Grapes, raisins, oranges, etc. are a way of life.

Cretans also consumed large amounts of fish containing omega-3 fatty acids. In Crete one thing that produces in abundance is olives. The oil consumption is directly linked to the good health of the inhabitants.

In the Cretan diet the basic fat was traditionally olive oil and even in distinctively large quantities. The locals use it for cooking, salads and even on bread for breakfast.

Oil is the basis of the Cretan and Greek diet and is used in most dishes replacing butter or other types of oil used in other regions of the world. The nutritional value of oil is enormous as it is perhaps the most powerful antioxidant in nature, protecting the body from oxidation and the development of free radicals that cause serious diseases.
