Get to know me better
Passionate Chef, I seek perfection in every dish.
The culmination of many years working in different restaurants, travelling around the globe, exploring new techniques, flavours and cultures has driven me and Amaya to create an unforgettable service to be enjoyed in the privacy of your home, yacht or hired venue.
We will work with you to design a custom menu and together create a uniquely tailored dining experience suited for your individual requirements. From a traditional Mediterranean style long lunch to creative tapas, canapes, a six to twelve course fine dining degustation or perhaps an authentic asado/BBQ style dinner.
To compliment our private chef services, we also have a professional wine sommelier among our team with significant local and international viticulture knowledge.
For me, cooking is...
Definitely a lifestyle! I really love what I do.
I learned to cook at...
I have a diploma in Culinary Arts, but I must say that travel around the globe and see different culinary cultures it's far the best school.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Without a doubt, Yotam Ottolenghi.
A cooking secret...
No secrets, simplicity and fresh produce.
