Get to know me better
Joy of taste and cooking!
My career in the culinary field began absolutely randomly/by chance, when I submitted a resume at the opening of Marriott Hotel (in Bucharest) for several departments, I simply needed a job, but luckily I was selected for kitchen, although not possessing knowledge or training. They gave us all the necessary trainings for the entry level.
The true passion, however, I discovered it in England, where I worked with international menus, and where I had the freedom to experiment with recipes from around the world. I had the opportunity to work with new ingredients, I used to go and buy fresh fish directly from the fish market, I chose from the market the ingredients with my hands, and it intrigued me very much from that point what was going to happen with those products that I choose so carefully. Every dish that came out coming out of the kitchen to the customers table, was made there, pasta, ice cream, bread, everything ... nothing was bought. That was the moment when I realized this is what I want to do.
I developed my gastronomic knowledge and skills through self-study and mainly through practical, hands-on experience.
I wanted to deepen my knowledge in the pastry field by following a three star Michelin course of the Institute Paul Bocuse in France - "Exclusive Pastry Program" under the guidance of Jérôme Langillier, World Champion Pastry Chef in 2009.
