Get to know me better
A dedicated individual in the industry trying to bring out the best in each ingredient I use and serve.
My passion for cooking doesn't come from a heritage of family chef's. In my teenage years where I felt very lost, I started reading a lot of cookery books which inspired me to take on cooking as a profession.
I decided to study for a Chefs Degree in Culinary Arts. Now over a decade down the line and I haven't regretted a second devoting my life to the kitchen, I am a confident and reliable hardworking individual. very passionate about food and learning to progress to the next level within the culinary trade. Always curious for learning new things following & creating recipes. I have a strong background experience and knowledge working with 2AA Modern European/Pan Asian Cuisines which I would like to career on.
For me, cooking is...

I learned to cook at...
I was taught initially by my parents on how to cook and I decided to make a career out of it by studying for a degree at culinary school.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Without a doubt it has to Mr Marco Pierre White, his enthusiasm and dedication has driven me to become a better person as well as a better chef.

Has to be learning how to use each ingredient as one and on how combining each will bring the best of its naturalness to each plate.
