Jim's career has spanned
Jim is the founding chef and current chef-partner of Mοlyvοs, which opened to great acclaim in 1997, as well as chef-partner of Abbοccato. Jim has become an important fundraiser for the Greek-American community throughout the Diocese of Boston Philoptochos. He has also published the cookbook titled The New Greek Cuisine.
Chef Βοtsacοs calls upon his life and career experience, together with on-going research and recipe development, to prepare the highest quality, most flavourful Greek food possible. "My approach at Mοlyvοs is to apply my training and classical techniques to the classics of Greek cuisine, without diminishing the recipes' centuries' old authenticity" he says.
Rich stocks, perfect timing and temperature, along with the freshest available ingredients, figure prominently in Chef Βοtsacοs' creative interpretations of Hellenic specialties, including Mοlyvοs' signature lamb yuvetsi, rabbit stifadο, cretan bread salad, and grilled baby octopus.
Jim continues to do his homework with periodic tours of rural kitchens throughout Greece, to keep up on what's new in old Greek traditions.
