How did you start your journey?

I come from the Provence region in France where the classic techniques of French cooking meet the extraordinary Mediterranean products and the influences from the Italian cuisine. I now head Boca, where the Cuisine form Italy, France and Spain are proudly represented in a relax and trendy environment. I am also very familiar with the cuisine of the Basque country having worked for a long time at Club Gascon, Michelin starred London restaurant, that excels in modern cuisine from French Gascony but also from French and Spanish Basque country.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I wanted to be a chef at a very early age, actually, I wanted to be a chef and a gardener so I can grow the food I would serve to my guests. This came from the fact that I used to eat very well as a child, growing up in Nice , and a few years in Gascony, my parents would make me sample some of the best specialties from there, also, my mom and my grandma are great cook and I used to watch them a lot as a kid. I therefore started to work as a cook when I was 15 years old while at the same time attending a culinary school.
