A New Gastronomic Era for bluegr Hotels & Resorts

bluegr Hotels & Resorts is excited to announce a new age of gastronomy in Minos Beach art hotel, Minos Palace hotel & suites and Candia Park village in Crete as well as Life Gallery athens!

A new collaboration with award-winning chef Yiannis Baxevanis will give the menus a grand makeover. Baxevanis joins bluegr as a consultant chef across the group’s four properties and will spearhead the creation of new dishes that will go hand in hand with bluegr’s gastronomic philosophy of using local produce and the freshest ingredients with a devotion to quality cooking.

Yiannis Baxevanis is known as the ‘aroma magician’ throughout Greece, a title gained through his talented use of aromatic herbs, adding his signature element to every high-end restaurant he has blessed.

And his talent has clearly impressed many: he is the winner of 11 Toques d’Or (Golden Caps) awards, has been named ‘Chef of the Future’ by the International Academy of Gastronomy and picked up a silver medal at the Strasbourg European Championship, as well as being named ‘Chef of the Year’ twice.

Alongside Baxevanis, a strong team of top head chefs are ready to cook up a storm. Kalliopi Kourkoutaki (new head chef of Minos Beach art hotel, previously of Elia Dubai), Kyriakos Mylonas (head chef of the Toque d'Or winning La Bouillabaisse, Minos Beach art hotel since 2007), Angelos Aggeloudis (new head chef of Minos Palace hotel & suites), Lambros Tsiambalis (head chef of Candia Park village) and Dionysis Zacharopoulos (new head chef of Life Gallery athens) are all on hand to welcome and promote a new gastronomic era for the hotel group.

This team of top talent, combined with the unmistakable and unbeatable flavours of Greece are sure to create a gastronomic experience that you will not want to miss in 2019.
