At La Chef Levi, our graduates are the most important ambassadors of our work. Since 1989, they have been earning their place in the best kitchens in the world with their value and effort. For us, they are undoubtedly “Stories that inspire”.
“Without passion, pastry alone is an art lacking creativity! I attended La Chef Levi’s School where I learned a lot. Competitions, discipline in the kitchen and lots of techniques. That’s where I got my first sweet “slaps”. But the most important things were healthy competition, discipline and the concept of cooperation. These are the basic ingredients that create a solid basis for any good pastry chef.”
Elpida Christina Morfouli
“La Chef Levi’s school has been and still is the only reason I’ve accomplished a lot so far. But, above all else, Mrs.Virginia Anastasiadou, who was a great mentor to me. I followed to the letter whatever she told me and I owe her my professional career.”
“As a graduate of La Chef Levi School in 1996, that’s where I gained knowledge, professionalism, consistency and organizational skills in the field of Culinary Art, “essential supplies” that contributed to my personal evolution so as to hold today the post of Executive Chef in the large hotel complex, Porto Bello Beach of the Atlantica Group in Kos Island. Thank you very much.”
“15 years after my graduation from La Chef Levi School and having acquired the title of Executive Chef, I feel lucky to have studied at this school but also for the teachers for all that taught me and prepared me not only as a cook but also as a right man in society.”
