Chef De Cuιsine

George Erotokritou


A
s an original chef, he is very independent. He completes every task that he will decide to and he is not a quitter. He likes having control. He is passionate, inventive, observative and energetic. He pushes things to the limit. He is profound and a very active person. There is always something more beyond what we see in that person. He presents a calm, independent profile out to the world, whilst an enormous and extreme power, an intense passion, strong will and persistence lie beneath. He has a penetrating mind. Do not be amazed at being bombarded with a great number of questions, he is just trying to look into your way of thinking and evaluate the situation in order to propose the appropriate plate that fits to your temperament.
 
For George, Cooking is science and every plate is a gourmet, “chemical” composition ready to impress everyone, even the most demanding palate.

As he says:

Cooking would be nothing if there was not kindness in us; a kindness that comes from the sensuality of things, a sensuality that is the same as the one that somebody expresses for a painting, a composition, a clear symphony, a way of giving in a coordinated form the total instrumentation of sensations.
