Hello, we are Ross and Trish McKenzie and we the owners of Loukoumi. We bought the business in July 2003, it was an impulse thing really, we were looking for a new challenge, and it we haven't been disappointed! The company Loukoumi was started in 1970 by the Palamidas family. Rather than the normal seven year apprenticeship we had to learn the whole process in 3 months. Nadia Palamidas' children Nick and Christina were our guides, teaching us the essential cooking and cutting techniques.
