The upscale boutique hotel Grace Santorini has won two prominent awards at the recently held Golden Chef’s Hat Awards 2016/Greek Cuisine Awards 2016.
Since 1992, the Golden Chef’s Hat Awards are given to the best restaurants in Greece and organized by Athinorama magazine/city guide. Within the framework of the Golden Chef’s Hat Awards, the Greek Cuisine Awards are also given to restaurants and taverns of the country that serve contemporary or traditional Greek cuisine that gather ratings of 14.5/20 and over.
Located in Thira, Grace Santorini collected the “Greek Cuisine 2016” award and “Young Talented Chef 2016” award, two distinctions considered a significant recognition for the hotel’s restaurant and executive chef Spyros Agious.
Having worked on the side of Michel Roux Jr. and Gordon Ramsay and gained experience in leading restaurants in Greece and abroad, Mr Agious has designed a sophisticated and robust menu for Grace Santorini that intelligently combines Mediterranean flavors and local ingredients and presents rich and delicious dishes.
“The local products of the Aegean with their distinctive flavors; the culinary history and tradition of the island; and the magnificent view from the Grace Santorini, are inspirations to me”, Mr Agious said.
“Both the Greek Kitchen award and the individual distinction for me as a young talented Chef, are of particular value for Grace Santorini and for me personally, and seal a tough team effort that aims for Grace’s guests to have unforgettable Greek culinary experiences”, he added.
