Cook/Host – Antony Pazianas
Even though Antony has a technical background in natural gas installations and maintenance, his passion for cooking, the sea and sailing was stronger than his studies and he finally decided to make his hobby bis profession. He was born in Larissa in 1993 and since his childhood, he has sailed with his father, who is a fisherman, on their family boat around the Greek islands. He was also helping his family with the seafood shop from a very young age and came to love cooking, creating new dishes, and the service sector in general. All his older siblings are professional captains, so it was natural to him to search for job opportunities onboard. He has worked in many different restaurants and is now taking the opportunity to raise his cooking abilities to the next level by going to chef school.
