Iakovos is also in charge of the kitchen at “Tzaneio Regional General Hospital” in Piraeus, Greece so he is a chef , by definition. But prefers the term “cook” for himself.

Iakovos, does not accept that the quantity is an enemy of quality and proves it every day, by cooking hundreds of delicious portions. He, also, transmits his knowledge and beliefs to his future colleagues, teaching at “IEK Homeros School”.
