Christos Bisiotis to Be Featured in MarBella Collection’s Greek Chefs Abroad Program

MIAMI – MarBella Collection Greece has been running a program since 2022 entitled Greek Chefs Abroad, featuring selected chefs showcasing their culinary expertise for a one-night-only luxury, sit-down, fine dining experience at restaurants at their five-star MarBella hotels in Greece. Attendees can look forward to a delicious journey through five continents as the guest chefs present menus highlighting the influences, ingredients, and flavors of their adopted homes. The chefs will be working closely with the talented teams from MarBella’s own restaurants with thrilling pop-ups and other fabulous surprises.

This summer, MarBella brings together five much-loved chefs from across the globe for their third edition of Greek Chefs Abroad, including Miami-based Chef Christos Bisiotis, the first Greek selected from the American market.

As noted on the MarBella site: “One of the biggest names on the Miami culinary scene, Christos Bisiotis brings a wealth of experience with him to MarBella Nido this summer. During his takeover the multi-talented chef will showcase his love of Greek, Italian and Israeli cuisine that has made him the chef he is today. Born and raised in Athens, by the age of 12, Bisiotis was working in his parents’ bakery. Since then, he’s been on an amazing journey with highlights that include being nominated for a Michelin Star at ‘The Greek’ NYC, launching Avra Beverly Hills and Milos Hudson Yards and being the first Greek chef to cook at the White House during the Obama administration.”

Bisiotis will display his culinary talents on Friday, September 1 at Apaggio, the fine dining Greek restaurant at Marbella Nido on the island of Corfu.

Bisiotis came to the U.S. on Christmas Day 2007, slept in a park, had no luggage, had nowhere to go – just his resumés and step by step, through hard work, determination, and a passion for great cuisine, he has reached great heights in the restaurant industry. He noted that being selected for Greek Chefs Abroad Volume 3 is an emotional request for him – to be ‘invited’ to showcase his years of experience like never before, in the country where it all started.

It should be noted that in the summer of 2022, Bisiotis created his own hospitality company, ‘The CB Concepts,’ focusing on three cuisines including Greek (Térpsi by Christos Bisiotis, in honor of his grandmother Terpsichore), Italian (LORA by Christos Bisiotis, inspired by his wife Laura Neroulias) and Israeli (Lox n’ Love). You will now find him doing what he loves, and what he does best – consulting for restaurants, cooking and delivering incredible weekly meals (aka CB Meals) throughout all of South Florida, catering for events, teaching culinary classes, executing personal chef services, and creating his own line of food products.

With values based on family, tradition, faith, respect, hard work, and relentlessness, Bisiotis is also dedicated to giving back, volunteering to cook for children with cancer. He now resides in South Florida with his wife Laura and has two loving children Christos Brendan and Anne Bella.
