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

Since I was very young I was fascinated with cooking and I wanted to become a Chef. So when I turned 14 I already decided what my life calling is going to be and I started attending high school specialized in training young chefs in culinary arts. When I first entered the kitchen and started working I immediately lost any doubt I had before, and I knew that I choose the right calling, and that the kitchen is going to fill my life with happiness and love.

    Likable person and easy to work with, no fuss, flexible and ambitious. The food was great although it was set as a casual BBQ and that too quite lean and healthy.

    I had the best experience with Chef Goran who came to my house and cooked delicious and mouth watering food. The veal sirloin was one of our favourite dishes. The marination of Veal was to perfection. I had the best experience and I am looking forward to have chef Goran for more fun cooking. I recommend that you try chef Goran if you are looking for Mediterranean food.

    Chef Goran is a highly professional chef, very organized, smiling and passionate. The dinner was absolutely delicious, the knefe burrata is a must try! Will definitely recommend Chef Goran for any dinner with French/Italian cuisine with a touch of Arabic. Thanks again :)
