Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

My passion for cooking started when I was very young, therefore, over the years I have absorbed a large and varied range of influences and styles. My current interest is in modern gastronomy, and specifically focusing on Japanese cuisine.

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

I got interested in cooking from a very young age. I had significant inspiration from my father - most of my childhood memories with him include the two of us together in the kitchen. I started cooking and getting formal culinary training when I was a teenager. At the age of 14 I took my first cooking-courses following which I started baking tarts and selling them. As soon as I graduated from university, I took a six months course and became a professional cook. In September 2014, I completed the Le Cordon Bleu London's Cuisine Diplome. To gain more experience I did some short internships in a Thai restaurant and in a vegetarian restaurant. My most recent job was in a German-cuisine restaurant where I realised I aspire to expand my creativity and need more freedom in order to really put my passion into what I cook. I see cooking as a creative and expressive process. When I cook I do it with my hands, with my heart and with my soul. This is why I decided to leave the restaurant and become a private chef.
