How did you start your journey?

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.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

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.
