I am a chef by profession, but it all started out as a necessity. I am a hotelier currently, working at one of the most prestigious hotels in the country. i still dabble in cooking on my off days. I love sailing! Photography is a hobby i will always hold dear.
My favorite things to cook
I love immersing myself in Italian Cooking. the flavours are so varied, so adventurous.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family were never adventurous when it comes to cooking...until I was handed a spatula for the first time
My cooking triumphs
In 1997, I won a gold Medal for a National Culinary Competition called Chefs on Parade. It was my first competition, and my entry actually broke the 7 year winning streak of another Chef that represented an upscale hotel.
My cooking tragedies
I once catered to a group of middle aged women. having prepared over three days the sit down menu, I thought that everything would be perfect. On that faithful night, after sweating over the stove for hours on end, I dozed off knowing full well the oven timer will rouse me. Guess what? It didn't. I ended up buying chinese take out. Sheeesh!
