About Me

Curriculum Vitae

My name is Theo and i am of Greek origin and a very experienced home cook. I enjoy experimenting with various International cuisines but i prefer and specialize in Mediterranean style cooking. I always use the finest ingredients i can get my hands on. My style of cooking is hearty, diverse yet simplistic and aims to please the whole family.

Besides home cooking, i also worked for many years in the hospitality industry as a chef. I owned a Greek takeaway restaurant in Penrith and also organised the meals for various occasions such as weddings, christenings and large parties.

This is my personal food blog, with some of my favourite recipes, cooking tips, ideas and more, but most of all, with a lot of love for cooking.

So, feel free to look around, learn, experiment, and even contact me, even if it's just to say "hey, your cooking is awesome!". Enjoy.
