For me, cooking is...
Simple and straightforward art. An intrinsic and complex orchestra that use all 5 human senses resulting in a profound pleasure in doing so.
I learned to cook at...
Il Gheppio Restaurant. I was 21 years old and through a friend, I was contacted by the owner and Executive Chef of this restaurant to be his Sous Chef
A role model in the kitchen is...
Without a doubt, Gordon Ramsey. Loving the fact that he combine Passion for food along with eye for businesses. Very Insparing
