Taso has a rich background that's deeply rooted in family togetherness and a love for food. As a Red hook native, Taso wanted to incorporate his families’ Greek origins with his lived experiences growing up in the Hudson Valley.
As a child, Taso was always drawn to the bustling energy of the kitchen, where his family would gather to prepare elaborate meals for special occasions and everyday dinners alike. He learned to appreciate the power of food to bring people together, to create a sense of community and connection that went beyond just satisfying hunger.
Taso continued to draw inspiration from the memories of his childhood, incorporating traditional Greek flavors and techniques into his cooking while also infusing his dishes with his own creative twists.
Taso recognizes that cooking is not just about preparing delicious meals, but also about creating a warm and inviting environment that fosters a sense of community and togetherness. He believes that food is a way of bringing people together, and that the atmosphere in which it is consumed can greatly enhance the experience.
