Get to know me better
A virtuoso professional with rich experience in menu development, aesthetic flair and high-quality implementation of European cuisine.
Having gained a wealth of experience in various kitchen processes, including hot, cold processes, josper, pizza oven, and grill, in TOP restaurants in Ukraine for over 8 years, I have become a confident all-round chef who deeply understands the processes and owns deep knowledge of menu development and preparation of various categories of dishes from local, Eastern European, Mediterranean cuisines. After that, I moved to Portugal, where I gained 2 years of experience in Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisines, as well as experience as a chef, which allowed me to develop a number of signature dishes. Today I have a wide portfolio and a number of special events that I served as a chef.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is like a hobby for me, doing what you like.
I learned to cook at...
in the Association of Chefs in Ukraine
A role model in the kitchen is...
no doubt this is my wife! Her cooking style is completely opposite to mine, and the taste of the dish touches me to the core
A cooking secret...
very often my secret is improvisation in cooking
