About the Creator of cytasty - Pany Galanis

Hello, I am Panayiotis Galanis, Pany for short to my friends and family. I grew up with four sisters and of course, my mum and dad. As in most Greek families at that time, being male and having 4 sisters, I was not expected to do any housework or cooking in my younger years. Times change though and as I have grown older, I do not believe in this thinking. I have partially made it up to my sister’s since, by cooking them some lovely meals at some of our family gatherings. When I was at an age when I began living on my own, I soon learnt how to do everything for myself. I was fortunate that one of the many professions my father had been in, was as a chef. So for example, when Sunday lunch was being prepared, my mum would cook the vegetables and roast potatoes and my father would cook the meats. They were both excellent at each! So I got to watch and learn from both of them, when they cooked different dishes, which came in handy years later.
