Dino Joannides formative years were spent living in various countries in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America due to the fact that his father was first a journalist and then a senior manager with Reuters. After Dino completed his undergraduate, postgraduate education in the UK and France, he worked both as a consultant and then for three North American headquartered technology companies. For the last 14 years Dino has been involved with a number of Software start up companies. Dino feels extremely fortunate to have been exposed to many epicurean delights, countries, cultures and peoples!
Today largely thanks to his work Dino gets the opportunity to continue to eat and travel around the world. When at home in London Dino enjoys cooking and shopping for excellent ingredients. He tends to have a small number of favourite restaurants but continues to try new ones too. Dino’s passion for good food has led him to become a shareholder and non executive with food and wine related businesses. Dino has also written a book on Italian Food and Ingredients "Semplice”. Dino is also a member of the World Gourmet Society and The Guild of Food Writers.
