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

My parents were both amazing chefs, and I started in their guest house restaurant when I was 13. After a few wrong career choices, I ventured back into the kitchen, to work in galleries and yachts in the Mediterranean, and I haven't looked back. I've worked on yachts, in private villas, ski chalets, and private houses. I now work as a freelance Private Chef for fridge filler meals and dinner parties.
