About Me

My name is Nafsika Papacharalampous and I come from Athens, Greece.

I have a PhD in the Anthropology of Food from SOAS, University of London and I am a trained chef.

I research food and identity. My ethnographic fieldwork was around traditional foods and their reinvention at modern delis and high-end restaurants, and focused on national identity, memory and links between taste and place, all during the times of economic and social crisis in Athens, Greece. I have also collaborated with Museum Nord in Norway on the 'Skrei Project', and researched the Norwegian coastal cultural identities in the Lofoten Islands.

I create business development strategies, content and recipes for artisan food companies. I also create fresh and colourful menus for various food spaces and restaurants. You can have a look at some of the recipes and blog posts that I've created here.

Oh, and you can read about my Greek Sunday Lunch here.

I hold an MA in Anthropology of Food from SOAS, University of London, an MBA and an MSc in Accounting and Finance from the Athens University of Economics and Business. For more CV stuff and work experience have a look here.

And of course, instagram, facebook, twitter.
