Irini Zouganeli | Mykonos Island

Get to know the soul of Mykonos through its traditional food & recipes.

For more than 10 years Irini has been cooking for families visiting Mykonos who have no time to cook or just simply want to enjoy their holidays without having to worry about cooking.  The delicious breakfast is a highlight, made with fresh ingredients from their garden and a whole lot of love!

A few years ago, Irini started cooking classes also for visitors of all ages who want to discover the local cuisine, introducing them to simple Mykonian comfort food, using traditional local ingredients.

As your private chef, Irini will look after all your daily requirements from breakfast, lunch and dinner to BBQ’s and cocktail nights. For special occasions Irini looks after all your catering needs whether it be for a wedding, christening or birthday celebration including buffet style, finger food and dinner parties.

One of a kind: There are still Mykonian households that produce the raw materials for their dinner tables and pass on traditional recipes from generation to generation.  Irini’s family is one of them and for us, this is something very special to experience in Mykonos.

“The best reward for me is a smile from a customer when they try my home-cooked dishes, or when they see me carrying my basket full of fresh eggs from my mum’s chicken coop or freshly picked melons from my dad’s vegetable garden” – Irini Zouganeli
