Get to know me better
Unique flavor my love on a plate
Am not your typical paper chef.
I have worked hard to apprentice past several well known respected chefs in vancouver including a Michelin star chef.
As I stand,my culinary mind has let me explore several different styles from Americana, Asian , Italian and of course thanks to my nanny who passed on her knowledge authentic Latino food using French techniques.
I simply live and love food my current mandate is to create a sustainable development of a restaurant similar to noma style with my take on local ingredients that I have had the opportunity to work with from the nation's people of Canada plus my intense research into past nautical practices.
I simply love my family and I respect food.
I grew up on both sides of life to know what's important to me as of late.
My ambition has propelled me to be the confident chef I am today thru many wonderful experiences I can't wait to see what this will bring. Peace.
For me, cooking is...
The celebration of food.Creating a feast for us to gather and connect with..
I learned to cook at...
The minute my nanny seen me peeking into the kitchen watching her chop up a chicken. As a little boy of 6
A role model in the kitchen is...
To show case food to feast on
A cooking secret...
Authenticity with a conected love for food. I don’t work well with generic.
