“The most influential Chef in Greece as voted by Greek Chefs”
Ettore Botrini is a Greek-Italian Chef born and raised in Corfu. He was inspired to become a Chef by his father’s love for cooking. He studied Tourism Management at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne. He had the chance to gain culinary experience in 3 Michelin star-rated restaurants in France and Spain and work side by side with some world-class Chefs including his current friend, Martin Berasategui.
He is involved in a series of renowned gastronomic projects, and he is the Chef-Patron of two restaurants: Botrini’s, and Etrusco restaurant in Corfu, named after his father, one of the most historic restaurants in Greece.
According to Fnl Guide 2020, Ettore Botrini’s main contribution to Greek gastronomy is that he has been charged -by the most important culinary critics and institutions- with paving the way for the evolution of Greek cuisine as “in addition to being the best chef in the country… he is the man who ‘taught’ modern techniques to Greek customers and chefs.”
He is one of the most recognizable personalities of the Greek culinary scene as he has starred in a series of TV shows including the Greek version of “Kitchen Nightmare”. He speaks five languages fluently (Greek, Italian, Spanish, French & English).
