Dino Joannides

My formative years were spent living in various countries in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America due to the fact that my father was first a journalist and then a senior manager with Reuters. After completing my undergraduate, postgraduate education in the UK and France, I worked both as a consultant and then for three North American headquartered technology companies. For the last 14 years I have been involved with a number of Software start up companies . I have been extremely fortunate to date to have been exposed to many epicurean delights, countries , cultures and peoples!
Today largely thanks to my work I get the opportunity to continue to eat and travel around the world. When at home in London I enjoy cooking and shopping for excellent ingredients . I tend to have a small number of favourite restaurants but continue to try new ones too. My passion for good food has led to become a shareholder and non executive with food and wine related businesses. I have also writen a book on Italian Food and Ingriedients "Semplice" to be published by Random House in 2014.
