Get to know me better

Cuisine enthusiast. I seek perfection and bring new experiences in each dish.

I am a professional chef with 11 years in the culinary world. I studied at the European Center in Curitiba (Brazil) in 2008 and opened my first restaurant at the same time. My restaurant received one of the most important awards in Brazil related to Brazilian Cuisine. After 3 years I sold my restaurant and started to work as Chef in one of the most important European restaurants in Brazil named Durski. At this company, we received 4 national awards.

I also have experience creating menus for different kind of events as retreats, weddings, birthdays and meetings.

Chef Toco was super responsive and easy to work with. He was professional yet personable which I think is perfect. The Take a Chef website was new to me but quite easy to use and helpful in figuring out how to select a chef. I highly recommend Chef Toco because of his responsiveness, his dedication to figuring out the best meal for the group and then the actual meals which are prepared with fresh ingredients and are beyond delicious .
