who we are

We are two (always), and sometimes we are three…
Which ones?

Vangelis

Cook and author of the 3 volume alternative culinary school Democratic Gourmet.

He specializes in southern European cuisine.
He works with cheap, fresh and healthy materials, which he presents in a modern and minimal way.
Grown up in Sepolia, Athens, he has studied in Italy and has a culinary experience in many European states.
In addition to his pans, he occasionally plays acoustic and electric guitars and writes about American basketball.
He speaks Greek, English, Italian, French and Catalan, and thus has the possibility of having a spherical culinary knowledge and daily contact with well-known cooks in Europe.
