Dimitris Kappos was born and raised on the beautiful island of Aegina. In 1999, Dimitris graduated from Le Monde
Culinary Arts School of Athens. After ten years furthering his professionalism in Greek cuisine, Dimitris decided to run his own restaurant.
In 2009, he created the first “Kappos Etsi” on Aegina, which, at that time, was located in Kipseli. After four successful years here,
Dimitris wanted to widen his horizons and moved “Kappos Etsi” to a listed building at P. Irioti Street, one of the most picturesque
streets right in the heart of Aegina town.
Dimitris was an international representative of Greek cuisine and food culture in 2007, 2011, 2012 and 2013 in Estonia at the Tartu Twin Towns'
National Cuisine Days. On the island of Aegina, Dimitris is an active member of the gastronomy team that participates in the Pistachio Festival,
presenting innovative new recipes which combine fresh ingredients with the newly harvested Aegina pistachio nuts. Since 2014, “Kappos Etsi”
has hosted a series of educational seminars about Culinary Arts which focus on cooking techniques and gastronomic innovation.
Dimitris Kappos, through his deep love and passion for Greek traditional cuisine has created unique recipes to delight every palate.
Each one of his dishes is an artistic culinary experience blending tradition with innovation.
