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

Ever since my mommo (that’s Grandmother to you) let me help in the kitchen back at home in Oslo, I’ve had a passion for cooking. It’s why I started working as a Private Chef – whether running supper club, private chef assignments or event catering – the feedback from clients is that the love of cooking shines through. I’m part Italian, speak 5 languages and have lived in many countries around the world, from Russia to Australia. My cooking then is influenced by all these experiences. It’s Nordic…ish! My menus reflect the changing seasons and I love using local, seasonal produce as much as possible - though their reindeer does come from further afield!

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

Cooking was always a really important part of my family life growing up, my aunt and my dad both owned & ran restaurants so when not helping there, I could be found following my grandmother around the kitchen watching what she was doing. Having made the decision a few years ago to take the plunge and make my own cooking story, I've been lucky enough to cater events such as intimate supper clubs, wedding receptions, themed parties (a personal favourite was a three tier Finding Nemo cake), as well as having worked as a private chef for Mohammed Al Fayed's country residence.

    Chef Martina was excellent - she adapted her menu to create something special for NYE. Prior to the event, Martina responded quickly to questions and queries, she arrived promptly on the night and everything ran smoothly and professionally. The food was delicious and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I highly recommend Chef Martina.
