Dimitris Papazymouris highlighted the importance of using high quality raw materials and only the freshest fish, especially in raw preparations. He also spoke about the physiology and unique characteristics of fish, explaining the process of denaturing raw materials through two forms of cooking, and referred to the culinary principles of taste and composition.
