My family wanted me to choose a technical school where I could be well educated and develop my business skills. I already decided that I wanted to be a chef, exactly like my friend’s father!
Inspiration: Through sheer determination I convinced my family to let me go to the hotel-management school that was 100 Km away from our house. I still remember how I used to drag myself out of bed to take the train and also how tired I was as I got back. Today I can say that the satisfaction of being successful in this difficult profession outweighs all sacrifices that I have made in the past.
Passion: The difficulty with been a chef is not just because you need passion, curiosity and an open mind but also because you need to work hard and be devoted, learning the modern techniques and perfecting your knowledge of raw materials as well as individual recipes.
People: Most importantly is the welfare of my colleagues. In a kitchen a nice atmosphere is necessary to get the best from your team and in turn they will be ready for the daily challenges faced in the kitchen. Last, but not least, you need to be able to listen to and understand your clients to find out their opinions and be given constructive feedback; both positive and negative.
On Love my Salad I would like to share something about myself, the best moments and my best recipes but also my personal experiences within a kitchen.
