Get to know me better
I believe in treating humble ingredients with respect and transforming them to a piece of art.
I am a professional chef with over 25 years experience. I am excited by cooking challenges, so I am always eager to learn especially considering that the food world is so versatile and progressive. I have recently done a teaching course and I am now qualified to pass on my experience and skills. I believe creativity and patience are a chef's greatest virtues.
For me, cooking is...
a lifestyle choice, one can not excel in cooking without the passion, discipline and commitment to the culinary world.
I learned to cook at...
I have been lucky to work with a variety of chefs in different cuisines as well as in two Rosettes kitchens.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Raymond Blanc, I admire how he has mentored and nurtured so many chefs over the years although he is self taught.
A cooking secret...
'Eye on the detail' and always keen to keep up with the trends.
