Get to know me better
I make people do a little dance when they eat
Joao has started his professional cooking journey in a different way that most of the chefs. After he finished his nutrition degree, he realised that learning specific diets and cooking methods was what he liked the most during the four years he spent in the uni.
Joao then launch himself in kitchen world and started travelling around to see, try and learn everything he could about food and ingredients. He spent one year working in small restaurants in northern Italy, searching the essences of the Italian cuisine.
