Tanja believes food should be enjoyable, clean and easy. She wants guests to experience new products and techniques so they can take something away with them, whether it be a new taste, surprising presentation or just a memory of a perfect evening with friends & family.
Tanja's passion is to create food which is fresh and simple, yet stunning and healthy, satisfying the highest standards and expectations.
Tanja's cooking style is classic european/french based inspired by asian techniques and flavours.
