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

I started to cook since I was a child with my mom and my grandmother. Professionally I have worked in Astrid & Gaston, on the list of the World 50 Best Restaurants by San Pellegrino, 5 stars hotels in Buenos Aires and Dubai. Faena Hotel were most of celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga stayed and part of the preopening team of Conrad Hotel on Sheik Sayed road along with 6 restaurants. Moved to Solutions Leisure (Asia Asia and Q43) cooking Pan Asian Cuisine and New American. My last two years in Dubai I have been working at Alto Mar Restaurant in the Fishing Harbour cooking Mediterranean and Portuguese food always using the fresh catch from the Harbour itself. Currently I'm the owner of Taste Kitchen Club, in Colombia, where we teach people how to cook. From kids to families, team buildings, caterings, wine tastings, coffee tastings and restaurant consultancy.

    We booked Chef Daniel for a week to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for a family of 6. He impressed us with his professionalism, setting up menus in advance, different type of cuisines, and great taste! We will book him again for sure.
