I had the pleasure of dining at Kefi last year when I visited New York and I was proud as a Greek when he cooked for President Obama and family on the occasion of Greek Independence Day.
I was fortunate to secure an interview with Michael recently and our chat went to over an hour! Michael and I discuss the recent opening of Eos, a Greek-inspired restaurant in Miami.
Michael and I have a wonderful conversation about his ventures, Greek food be it traditional or contemporary, the ingredients in Greek cooking, his approach to menus, growing up Greek in America, his memories of cooking in the White House, his future plans and his thoughts on where Greek cuisine is going.
With the interview clocking in at over an hour, I’ve decided to give you installments of the conversation.
From listening to my chat with Michael, you immediately detect his passion as a Greek and ultimately for Greek cuisine. I do hope you enjoy my chat with Michael Psilakis as much as I did. He’s is truly inspired and he’s definitely become a person I greatly admire.
