Katerina Remoundou, the sole creator and owner of Zozef, proudly maintains that every single culinary ingredient that reaches her kitchen bench is 100% pure and, a 100% Greek. Not because of an over-ambitious chauvinism – Katerina is a well cultured and well travelled woman, who turned her back at a longtime career in the media to return to her homeland and recreate her grandad's (Zozef) traditional café.
It is more that she loves the land, knows it well and knows how to handle its products in order to create fully nutritious, superbly healthy and gloriously tasty dishes.
Homemade bread, local cheeses, organically grown veggies, fish from around the coast and meat from nearby farms, extra virgin olive oil, juicy citrus with fresh herbs from its garden, these make up Zozef's basic cooking materials.
What they turn to each day, is up to the owner's feeling, mood and imagination. The first two besides, are something visitors get a lot of – and by that we mean Katerina's unpretentious and cordial address to anyone entering her premises, be it a close friend, a total stranger or just a neighbor.
