BEN PISANI – @HELLENICSOCIAL X @CHEFBEN_JETT – INTERNATIONAL CHEF / OWNER HELLENIC SOCIAL / LOCAL FRESH PRODUCE IMPORTER

My plan was to just “take the leap” and do a season abroad, experience something different, meet new people and then go back to Australia and live a “normal” life. Fast forward 8 seasons later and I now co- own one of the best brunch/dinner venues on the island, have met friends (who are now family) for life, and my “normal” life involves endless summers of travel and cooking around the world. As a chef I’ve been so excited watching the evolution of the food / restaurant scene over the last 8 years. I take pride in being able to work with local Farmers and suppliers to get the best produce available, which has now become the driving force for all restaurants to create so many amazing dishes, with countless vegan/vegetarian options, fresh seafood dishes to local Greek specialties , Ios has become a leader in culinary cuisine Tourists have a variety of food options whether it be a night out with friends, an intimate dinner with that special someone or a recovery breakfast to cure the hangover, Ios has an option for everyone
