Get to know me better
French, spanish and italian cuisine. Tasteful and traditional
Elia Muñoz Carulla is an Alumni of Le Cordon Bleu London. She has been dedicated to the world of food industry for over 10 years with experience in catering, events as BBC GOOD FOOD SHOW and what she is more enthusiastic about: being a private chef.
Born in Madrid, she discovered her great passion in traditional home cooking as a child, always being the little helper to her mother and grandmother whom to this date, she considers the best cooks.
Spending summers in the seaside town of Valencia and working in the family restaurant, she decided to obtain her culinary school degree in Madrid, whilst gaining experience in catering and events.
Willing to discover the traditional Italian cuisine, she went to Vicenza (North Italy) and study at the University of Taste at which she met her fiancé, with whom she later together decided to pursue a professional career in London by working as a chef at restaurants and attending Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu. She is also specialised in handmade fresh pasta at "La vecchia scuola bolognese" (the old Bolognese school in Bologna, Italy)
Here, Elia discovered her true passion for being private chef, focusing on traditional and modern Spanish, Italian and French food culture, using exquisite hand picked ingredients.
For me, cooking is...
my passion, I like to create every dish from scratch

in my grandmother house with my mom, always around in the kitchen
