About me

Mon amour for food industry started early in the childhood when my grandmother carried me to the food markets in Ukraine to choose the best vegetables, meat and fish to prepare dinners for her family. She made me try almost everything we bought and taught me how to find the best of the best. 

I have travelled a lot, spent four years in French colonies in Africa and South America, been to Asia for several times. Everywhere I met people who shared with me their secret family recipes and their food stories. All these memories, authentic tastes and special experiences I use today for creating my colorful and exciting custom-made menus.

After finishing my six years of professional military career at the French Foreign Legion where I also cooked for my fellow soldiers, I graduated from the gastronomy college Prom'Hote Centre de Formation de l’Industrie Hôtelière in St. Raphael, France. Later I studied in Paris at the École de Boulangerie et de PâtisserieI am the member of Estonian Association of Head Chefs.
