Hello! It's so nice to meet you!
Cooking was a big part of my life growing-up as my grandfather was a farmer. He enjoyed growing a variety of fruits and vegetables that my grandmother would then prepare for our family meals. I was introduced around the kitchen as a child, helping my late grandmother as her apprentice in the kitchen. I didn't think it would be something I would truly enjoy doing--I thought it was boring with all those preparations! But then, I got to see people enjoying the food I created and relished the feeling. In 2006, I joined the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school.
After my trainings at Le Cordon Bleu, I worked as a cook and a banquet chef. It's a tough job, especially in a male-dominated industry. I learned to be patient, to effectively work with different personalities, different cultures and also how to balance work, play, and family.
Today, cooking is still what I enjoy doing, but in a different way. I have transitioned from being in a professional kitchen to a Personal Chef and a Nutrition Consultant in people's homes! I love working with people who are looking to adopt a healthier eating style. I tremendously enjoy customizing a weekly menu for my clients that suits their individual and family needs while staying away from boredom and giving them the spice of life--variety!
