Michalis Stalas - EXECUTIVE CHEF

Michalis Stalas


Genuine Dodecanese from Kalymnos was professionally involved in cooking as soon as he graduated from the public IEK of cooking of Rhodes. He believes that one of the key elements a cook should have is humility and commitment to what he does. This way he becomes creative and evolves in the field of gastronomy.

Afterwards during his career he worked in many hotels and restaurants of Rhodes, as well as catering (Atrium Group, Imperial Rhodes hotel and convention center, Sheraton, etc.). He likes to attend seminars, the evolution of cooking and modern techniques always based on the tradition of gastronomy. He has taught for some years at the IEK of cooking of Rhodes.
