Kleanthis Konstantinidis aka Akis
Akis was born a Greek – but 25 years in Portugal is time enough to acquire, among other things, the taste of this place. His early training as an architect at the Scuola Politécnica in Milan didn’t introduce him only to geometric forms, but also to culinary forms that lead to him study cooking in Milan, Perugia, Florence and Catania. Knowing something more than a little, but with a hunger to learn even more, he decided to garnish his gastronomic CV by studying Portuguese cooking.
From Greece he brings us memories of the “Luças” that were all the rage there; from Portugal he adds the appetite that the sea provides. Such a combination could only be a good one.
