How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

When I was about 4 I used to watch my mum cook and admire her making those subtile and wonderful dishes. It was her who gave me the love of giving pleasure to others. Then after a journey to the university in Florida i registered myself in a fine and famous school in Paris "ferrandi". I started from the bottom as a commis to get my place in the most prestigious restaurant to the best catering service in Paris "Potel et chabot"or "jacquescagna". The Michelin restaurant. I made my way little by little.
