A minute with Andreas Pyrishis Founder of Fork Food Market


Where do you live?
Just came back from studies in London, so with my mum in Nicosia.

Best childhood memory?
The time we got our 11-year-old sister drunk in a tavern in Paphos and no one noticed until it was time to go and she couldn’t even stand on her feet.

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
Silver Pot in Nicosia for a BLT at Saturday brunch.

What food would you really turn your nose up to? (dislike)
Anything not healthy or homemade-ish!

What did you have for breakfast?
No time for breakfast at the moment!

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day
Definitely a day person and spending it around family.

Best book ever read?
All the cookbooks in my mum’s cupboard!

Favourite film of all time?
A Beautiful Mind, it was the first time I realized how strange man is.

Best holiday ever taken?
Thailand was the best trip I ever took! It was the first time I really felt close to nature PLUS pieces of wonderful exotic fruit came to find you on the beach.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Monsieur Doumani over and over again.

What is always in your fridge?
Cashew nuts, goji berries and steak.

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
Rural retreat somewhere (anywhere) in a forest.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Adria Ferrer, head chef of El Bulli for obvious reasons.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
Hug my mum for the rest of time.

What is your greatest fear?
That one day the force of gravity will be lost.

Tell me a joke…
Go back 2 questions:)
