The official website for Panos Ioannidis, a Greek chef, a businessman and a judge in the Greek TV program, “Masterchef”.

THE REQUEST

The initial thought was to create a website to host the chef’s bio as well as his proposed recipes. After consideration, the chef needed a place to also share his knowledge, tips & tricks and articles from experts making it easier for everyone to get familiar with gastronomy.

The website hosts the chef’s bio, recipes, a gastronomy dictionary, tips & how-to, news, videos, collaboration, articles from experts and also extended filters, search functionality and a custom user system, making it a portal.

OUR SOLUTION

We built a robust CMS based on WordPress, customized to meet the project’s needs. The client and his team can manage recipes, articles, tutorials, videos and all of the above content and list user’s voting and number of likes.

We built a custom user system where the user can create an account in order to interact with the website content. The logged in user can save any article to his list such as a recipe, tutorial, video, etc, like an article and also vote for a recipe.
