Get to know me better
If I stop cooking, I'll die!
I am a professional vegan and gluten free chef.
I've worked at one of the biggest food industries in Croatia, as a Chef Researcher, at the department of Research & Development.
My job was to create new product prototypes, to create new and innovative recipes out of our products, so our customers could use products in many different ways.
I work a lot by food pairing, which means that I combine ingredients by using chemical compounds, on that way I create innovative dishes and products.
I went on education in Sweden, and in a few restaurants and hotels, across Croatia.
Also I worked as an executive Chef at vegan restaurant and vegan/gluten free bakery in Zagreb.
Currently I'm working on opening my own food production in Zagreb, and along the way I keep myself busy by working on few more projects.
I do a lot of food photography, because good food, deserves a good photo.
My main goal is to show people that vegan and gluten free food can be creative, modern and delicious, but also I like to make traditional meals on my way.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is a therapy for me. When I am cooking or developing new recipes and ideas I feel like a child on the playground.
I learned to cook at...
I learned to cook at home, even before I went to culinary school. But every new day brings new opportunities to learn and a chance to grow.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Hmm, this is a hard one. I don't have a role model, because there are so many amazing people who are very inspiring.
A cooking secret...
Love, spices and fresh ingredients.
