YOUR FAVOURITE DESTINATION?
Latest and my absolute favorite, Andros Island.
TELL US ABOUT THE STAY? WHERE AND HOW WAS IT?
I stayed at Melisses Andros, it was an amazing cooking workshop week. Basically it was all about cooking every single day.. We had another chef from London, cooking together with us, it was fun!
ANY GREAT FINDS FROM THAT LAND?
You mean the best cheese, olive oil and honey? Yes great finds..
SHARE SOME UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES WITH US
I went there with my favorite twins in town Gul and Nur Hurgel so basically every single moment was fun! But the picnic at the beach, learning how to make local cheeses, amazing table settings at night and apperetivo just before that.. some not bad memories:)
YOUR PLAYLIST OR FAVORITE SONG ON REPEAT?
Well the island is pretty small.. The beaches are truly amazing and untouched..You should definitely go to Xora, and the local market.. And if u want something extraordinary, visit the Monastery of Panachrantos, a group of priests live there and one of them, their abbot, is a legendary cook. He will make you sit around him and cook the best halva.
Well wine while coking and beers at the beach was the deal there..
GREAT FOOD? WHERE?
Great food at local tavernas, streets everywhere..But in Melisses Andros we cooked the most amazing food..
WHAT DID YOU PACK?
Very very light if I may say.. you don’t need much
WOULD YOU GO BACK? WHY?
Absolutely! I wanna go back to that dream house for some more cooking with amazing people..
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEXT DESTINATION AND DREAM DESTINATION OR JUST DREAMS:)
Tulum Mexico is one dream.. Tokyo with my daughter Sahara is another dream destination..
And my dream if u ask..anywhere where I can cook, learn from new people, taste great food and meet absolute strangers, and share the love, well that’s my dream..
