George Vutetakis learned "the language of food" as a young boy in his Greek grandmother's kitchen. It was there that he was first exposed to the value of cultural traditions in cooking. His discoveries continued with travels to India where he learned traditional food preparation methods. Today, using time-honored techniques as his guide, he weaves the Mediterranean and Indian flavors of his youth into many of his extraordinary dishes.
His reputation as a leader in the creation of delicious, low-fat and innovative vegetarian cuisine, using fresh, unadulterated ingredients, flourished as chef and owner of the award winning Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak, Michigan. After nearly two decades, Chef George sold the restaurant and began writing and teaching. He shares his vast food knowledge and delicious recipes on his popular blog. He currently lives in San Diego enjoying the abundant varieties of fruits and vegetables. Again, he has established a relationship with local organic farmers whom he has always credited with being the real heroes behind his traditional, sustainable and exceptional cuisine.
