Get to know me better
After 10 years of culinary travelling, I settle in Cyprus to offer my experience through my work. Contact me if you are seeking fine gastronomy!
Being in the kitchen is something that has always fascinated me for as long as I remember. It is something I credit my mother with, since I grew up by observing, learning, and cooking with her. Despite being discouraged against following a career in the Culinary Arts, due to the hard schedules and challenges involved, my passion for cooking and my thirst for knowledge propelled me to seek such a career.
I studied for three years at the Higher Hotel Institute of Cyprus, where I graduated second from my program. In addition, I was awarded the only prize for my Baking and Pastry research project concerning Mentha. I then attended and received my bachelor degree from the Cesar Ritz college in Switzerland. Noteworthy, I graduated first from my class as I am very passionate and dedicate to my subject. Indeed, my motivation to be constantly involved with the culinary arts can be evidenced by the fact that throughout my three year program in Cyprus I was working part time in restaurants and pastry shops, where most of the times I worked pro bono.
I am a self-motivated individual who always tries to make improvements or take corrective action while using logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions. I am also a good active listener who gives full attention to what other people are saying, takes time to understand the points being made, and asks questions as appropriate while not interrupting at inappropriate times.
I believe that these aspects of my character and my more than ten year experience working around culinary professionals in Cyprus, Switzerland, USA, France and England will ensure my success to offer the best.
For me, cooking is...
