What critics say about my novel, The Loving Chef (Athens: Kedros Publishers)

Constantinos Bouras

Poet, Writer, Critic

"One of the most interesting and innovative books among recent publications."

Dimitris Boutos


"An erotic cookbook? Possibly. I do not know the exact term, but this is certainly inspirational! 

Look for the book, for yourselves - or as a lovely, slightly naughty, gift."

Maria Andrikopoulou

“An amazing book! One of the best books I have ever read.
