- Favourite coffee: Greek!
“When I spent time in Greece 15 years ago, I fell in love with the taste of their coffee. I found it way more flavoursome,” says George. “Since then, I have continued to seek out Greek coffee. I still enjoy a variety of different coffee bean flavours however the beans are pulverised more finely for Greek coffee, and it is made in a briki (small saucepan).”
George has ONE cup of coffee a day: Greek, black (no milk), with one flat teaspoon of raw sugar.
- Healthy eating*
Staying optimally healthy is essential for the role of Facial Plastic Surgeon which involves close consultation with patients and long hours in the operating theatre.
