 7 Interesting Facts About Me

This is always the hard part I believe!!

1. I am a pastry chef by school, but I do not like to measure! Shhhh don’t tell anyone that. :p

2. I was a chef on the island of Skiathos where they filmed the movie Mama Mia.

3. I am a licensed cosmetologist for over 14 years.

4. My family on my fathers side is from Mani, Greece. I named Kouzounas Kitchen after my grandmother who was a cook in Greece.

5. If I wasn’t cooking, I would be at the beach with my boyfriend, and my puppy Cosmo.

6. I have a puppy who is 10.5 months weighing in at 85 pounds. His dad is a show dog at 100 pounds. So we are going to have a big dog. His name is Cosmo, and we named him after the show Seinfield. Most Greeks like to cal him Kosmos which means people.  🙂

7. I work 7 days a week, including catering as well as working three farmers markets in the Sacramento area. I am one passionate chef.
