Philip Vakos, chef at Philhellene Provincial Greek Cuisine, has mastered using the Hellenic culture to influence his cuisine. He uses the flavours and spices of Greece to whip up classic dishes, and create contemporary affairs. But his Hellenic spirit touches on all areas of Greek culture. So, we want to know, when it comes to music, what Greek song is Philip and why?

“Nikos Oikonomopoulos’ Kalimera, as the song resembles my spirited approach to everything I do.

“Like many Greeks in Greece, I live for the moment and am carefree. “Whether it be loved ones or doing something you love, the passion and connection of being Greek is with you throughout the day, no matter where you are and what you’re doing.”
