Get to know me better
With love and careful attention as my main ingredients, my goal is to turn your culinary experiences into memories you'll cherish for a long time.
I am a professional chef with 5 years of experience working in multiple operations - from hotels, to restaurants, to cafes, and now dedicated to personal cooking. Graduated from the culinary program at The Art Institute of Vancouver, I began my journey of learning how to elaborate meaningful culinary experiences.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is an art that brings people together - a window into someone else's life, their influences, their upbringing, and their memories.
I learned to cook at...
The Art Institute of Vancouver, where I graduated from their culinary arts and hospitality program in 2012
A role model in the kitchen is...
I have many. I grew up watching Gordon Ramsay cook and to this day he is still an influence. Other role models are Curtis Stone and Julia Child.
A cooking secret...
Using the best local ingredients I can find and the best tools I can get my hands on.
As a Private Chef, I can offer you:
Simply tell me what you're craving! I would love to create the perfect menu for your special occasion in Vancouver.
I can do weddings, birthdays and corporate events in Vancouver. You name it!
A longer stay in Vancouver? I'm available for holidays, on a daily basis, and so forth. Just let me know!
