Get to know me better
The kitchen, even in its highest representation, surrenders to the product and the culture and must make them objects of worship and homage
From Brussels where I started my training to Tokyo, I have an international experience in 4 continents and several countries.
I do respect and play a tribute to different cultures and am thankful for the opportunity of the knowledge of an array of products and techniques.
Like in music I'm not a prisoner of one style, I go from jazz to baroque, classical, rock'n roll, flamenco or mpb. With food is the same. Why should I be a hostage of a country or national ethnic gastronomy? I do enjoy variety if it's well balanced.
For me, cooking is...
A way of expression, an opportunity of sharing cultures and experiences, a multidisciplinary work in progress.
I learned to cook at...
La Tsampa, in Brussels with a great and inspiring french chef. This was just the beginning. Gladly I keep on learning everyday.
A role model in the kitchen is...
French cuisine is the basis for western techniques. Italian and mediterranean are inspiring for their sophisticated simplicity.
A cooking secret...
No secrets, just great ingredients, inspiration and no boundaries.
