Get to know me better
Knowledge and Quality.
I began cooking with my mom when I was a kid, she has spent part of his life in the kitchen. I worked in restaurants as a dishwasher then I became line cook in a famous Chinese food chain. I have culinary education as a cook B in Instituto Nacional de Aprendizaje (INA).
I have 22 years now and I had my first sous chef position when I was 21. Now I want to start move maybe visit another countries and eat more !
I think first of all success is consistency and discipline. In kitchen you have to listen chef and say: -yes chef! Or -no chef! Is our work and you have to take it seriously it depends on the future of where you will be or how much you will know.
When you have amazing fresh products is good but if you don’t know how to work with them is just losing time. Freshness is good but knowledge is better!
My cooking style is Costa Rican-Fusion. I can make different meals of seafood, farm to table or vegan. I like to mix it with Asian and smoke notes. Also I can make typical Costa Rican food.
All my recipes or dishes are created by me looking around of what this beatiful world offer to us. My kitchen is from author.
