My name is Yannis and am passionate about Greek food and our local ingredients. Feel blessed as I live and work in a country that produces a plethora of unique products that I can use in my recipes and share with others. We live with my partner in a beautiful and unique location in Athens- our home is INSIDE a huge park and our garden is full of veggies and edible flowers that I use in my dishes!. I have been working in the food industry for the past ten years now and started by being a finalist of the first ever Greek Master chef so I had my 15 minutes of fame or maybe a bit more as I am currently featured cooking on TV a few days a week. Love coming up with new and exciting recipes and have a website with them (www.bearfootinthepark.com)

What to expect at Yannis's place
A perfect final night in Athens with my family. Yannis and Robert were very warm hosts, and the food was absolutely delicious. The garden setting was quite magical and a lovely relaxing way to spend an evening. Yannis kindly made some fantastic drinks for the kids and the only picky eater of the group (aged 8) announced that Yianni’s place was THE place to try new food. We loved every second of it.
Our family of four had marvelous evening of food and company with Yannis. Food was interesting and delicious. Yannis is so passionate about preserving Greek's natural resources especially those in the food chain. He obviously cares about food and cares about each gueat's experience. Highly recommend!
What a night! We had such a special experience with Yannis! His knowledge and expertise is endless. We marveled at his culinary technique as we learned a ton about specialty Greek ingredients and where they come from. Our family of 8 are a group of total foodies and this evening was perfect for us. You seriously can’t imagine how good the food is until you try it for yourself! So many thanks to Yannis and Robert, not just impeccable hosts, but now our friends for life!
