Lefteris Soultatos - From the age of 12 he started the journey of cooking and realized that this is the profession he wanted to follow. Born in Heraklion, Crete with Cretan parents, he started his culinary journey from Crete in 5 star hotels. Traveled abroad to France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Egypt, Qatar Spain, Poland, England, America, Switzerland and other countries gave him the chance of interacting with renowned award-winning chefs around the world and high-end gastronomy restaurants.
After his travel experiences he decided that Greek cuisine and Greek products are what he would most like to use and to develop in his own menus. His love for Crete and Greece in general made him want to promote Greek cuisine abroad, participating in world gastronomy conferences and presenting Greek cuisine and Greek products.
Today he owns a consulting company, “Soultatos Chef Consulting”, where he sets up menus for large and small hotels as well as restaurants, new projects and many franchisees in Greece and abroad. He is also a consultant to companies with products. His company has 11 chef’s and 3 pastry chefs, although his direct collaborator is Manolis Soultatos, his brother who shares his dreams and thoughts with him. Their company, in addition to the perfect execution of the recipes and the formulation of the menu, also undertakes the training of all the staff of a restaurant and, as it typically says, the supervision that everything works as planned.
