This springs from the cook’s ability to recognize the value of cooking on the basis of natural ingredients. It is their knowledge on the ingredient’s characteristics that allows the cook to see its infinite potentialities. To see in a simple tomato the potential for something sweet or savory, for a soup, sauce or even a salad. There are no enhanced ingredients, no intricate garnishes, no perfect platters and yet the meal is so deliciously fulfilling and rich in flavor. It is simple but complex in the way knowledge and practice come together to create something with quality and, therefore, good for you.
In Koukaki, in an authentic neoclassical home, you will feel the heat of the kitchen warm your heart as you imperfectly chop tomatoes, spill sauces and stain your lips with wine. Greek cuisine will inspire you to be simple in the way you cook, but more importantly in the way you play with the natural ingredients of your own character.
