“Yannis Rokanas - The Executive Chef of Acro Suites"
Cooking is in my passion.
I was fortunate enough to turn my passion into my profession.
There is nothing I love doing more than creating and sharing my food with people who indulge in the same love and appreciation of a unique culinary experience.
The first memory I have with cooking goes back to when I was a child, growing up in a home filled with flavors and delicious cooking aromas.
I knew that I wanted to become a chef since then that’s why I decided to follow my passion and actually study at Le Monde Culinary School of Athens.
My journey began as I worked besides some of my heroes and Michelin Star Chefs.
I have been fortunate enough to build a great team and found incredibly talented people along the way that I have by my side till this day.
Building a strong team with people who share the same philosophy as me, has contributed to constantly try new things, create new recipes, explore the deep Greek culinary history.
By combining traditional recipes with new ideas & techniques we bring something new to the table.
I am truly devoted to local, seasonal produce and collaborating with Cretan farmers & grocers.
My ethos is respecting the ingredients, minimizing food waste, focusing on flavor and never be afraid of experimenting.
The dinner table is the place we come together by sharing a delicious meal and create memories.
A few words that perfectly depict my relationship with cooking is taste, teamwork, respect and devotion.
