I have memories of family gatherings with dozens of first cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles, everyone in the kitchen where cooking, talking, laughing, having a strong opinion on how to cook the potatoes or how to serve the salad.
These memories of the atmosphere that evolved around food, eating rituals and the kitchen have always fascinated me.
On the other hand I have had a background in design, which as the years passed became more and more oriented towards visual culinary identities.
When I started working with Christos in 2009 on a cookbook, that experience was a thrilling for the both of us. The cookbook became a playground for the exchange of creative ideas of all sorts, revolving around food.
Christos’ photos are “honest”. They tell us stories, and our work together on “Aegean Pan” is the fruit of our common love for all things culinary in the Cyclades, where I have made my home, in the last two years.
