When you sit and fire up your vape and feel the rush from an extraordinary taste that hits your palate, that’s when you know you have made the right choice. Vapers tend to know a great taste when its being vaped, but do we know what was formulated to bring us the exquisite flavors and experience? This is when we look into Executive Sous Chef George Kapetsonis whom comes from an extensive background in the culinary industry. George has been the head chef for one of the largest casino resorts in the United States and following with several appearances on national television. Recently his work has been chosen by Njoy (one of the largest internationally recognized ecigarette companies) as 1 of 5 top juices in the world and rated #1 by the global vape community. Mr. Good Vape has had the honor to add George to our team, contributing an unquestionable uniqueness to the flavor of our premium ejuices.
A little background that brought our chef into being who he is today, was acquired during his youth. George has told us ever since his adolescence food has always been a big part of his life. He had stated; “I grew up in a small town in Louisiana where we raised chickens, grew vegetables, fished and hunted as a routine.” Growing up, George was taught an important premise was providing for yourself no matter who is there. Being raised to be very self-sufficient meant to learn the craft of cooking, which in turn would later become the arts of culinary. George’s earliest jobs began in the food industry, he recalls working across from the Las Vegas Convention Center and learning the back end of the business through some of the busiest Vegas restaurants. Jumping into this professional industry led him to attend The Cordon Bleu in Las Vegas followed by 10 years of hands on experience. George’s hard work and conviction opened the door for national recognition by the American Culinary Federation, they awarded him with the title of Certified Executive Chef.
To obtain the title additional qualifications were needed. A full title would entail a three year process. This rigorous process trained chefs properly in the ways of business, nutrition and sanitation. After the process is completed, an application needs to be sent to American Culinary Federation. From that point there is a two part exam, the first is written and the second is practical. The questions in the written exam cover all facets of being an executive chef in a large scale operation. The practical exam is a 3 hour skills test covering knife cuts, cooking techniques, and traditional practices of the industry.
When George was asked how he feels his experience contributes to the ejuice industry, he stated; “My experience in the culinary industry, and having a well-rounded understanding of what tastes mix very well together. Also the collaboration between the two industries has helped me to become more innovative with creating new cuisine and e-liquids.”Going deeper into George’s instincts of taste he explains that taste is based off smell, if you can’t smell anything you can’t taste anything. He thinks of this when creating ejuice, George focuses on the smell before anything else.
When coming to work alongside Mr. Good Vape, George explains how he started working on the newest flavor Honey Baby and how he discovered the right mixture. He started researching how to make a particular ice cream, he was instructed to stay away from fruit with high water content. Cantaloupe was mentioned as a fruit that you should not use. He wanted to use Honey Dew because it had such a low water content in the Melon. It came down to its freezing properties and what you can serve to order, when garnishing it. It proved to produce positive results when served with guava and mango. With Honey Baby he added the Honeysuckle simply because its smell complimented the rest of the extract combination and then that played off the name.
In addition to the current flavors that have been designed by our culinary chef, he will be creating a new flavor to join the Godfather ejuice family. A flavor that has been in high demand, is an exotic custard from Mr. Good Vape. Our culinary team will be releasing a unique blend to complete our ejuice line. In the near future, George will be working towards the release of two other ejuice lines from our company. These additional ejuice lines will be completely separate from the current Mr. Good Vape product. Our goal is to bring the best eliquids possible to the end user. With us being selected as one of the top five by Njoy and out of that chosen as the top ejuice as people’s choice. Mr. Good Vape has a track record of proving itself as the world’s number one ejuice, we strive to continue to deliver products that reflect these results for the vaping community.
