George Karos, Sous Chef
Growing up in a Greek family, food has always been a large part of George’s life. His appreciation for food and its cultivation came from family trips to the archipelago of Fourni, Greece, where his mother was raised. Seeing the process of raising, cultivating and foraging for food from a young age inspires him to live self sustainably. Coming from a family of fisherman and farmers, fresh, simple and love-for-food are paramount in George’s cooking.
George holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. His creativity and passion for learning push him to reinterpret the flavors that he grew up with by utilizing ingredients and techniques from different cultures. He gains inspiration from the diverse cuisines of the world. He was born and raised in Baltimore, MD where he was exposed to Latin American, Korean, and Middle Eastern flavors. His time abroad living with families in Leon, Nicaragua and Cuernavaca, Mexico further influenced his culinary inspirations.
When George isn’t in the kitchen he is working in his vegetable garden, his ceramics studio, or wandering the beaches of the South Coast, often foraging for local ingredients.
