The period we are experiencing has tested and is continuing to test restaurateurs, taken by the delivery experience (new for some), but also committed to reinventing their business when possible with new initiatives. He did it Vasiliki Pierrakea, owner and chef patron of the Greek cuisine restaurant in Milan called Vasiliki Kouzina.
«There have been many difficult moments, but I've always tried to go further, to think positively. All this gave me the strength to implement an idea that has been in the works for some time now, but in which I have always strongly believed: to create Vasiliki Kouzina's virtual shop. I took advantage of the closing days to define every single detail .
Vasiliki's passion for his land can already be felt through the restaurant menu, which tells of a Greece that is sometimes different from the one we are used to. The selection of the best local products, coming from small local producers, characterizes Vasiliki's cuisine as his new e-commerce, with the aim of making the richness of Hellenic gastronomic culture travel off the beaten track.
