Xenis is a chef/restauranteur from Dheryneia village. For about 20 years, he and his 3 brothers have been managing the Knight’s Pub & Restaurant in the Pernera touristic area in Protaras, Famagusta (here’s a photo playlist from TripAdvisor in case you haven’t been), on the eastern side of the island of Cyprus with great success. One of the reasons for their success is the way chef Xenis handles his kitchen. Insisting on serving quality food, he uses only the best produce, either purchased fresh from his trusted contacts, or gathered from his own orchard that he tends to on a daily basis. Visiting the orchard every morning to collect fresh vegetables and herbs is a calm way to start off the day and a chance to catch up with his mother. Xenis is another good example of a conscious business owner who is trying to develop his operations in a sustainable manner.
