I am a professional chef with a passion for healthy gourmet food, I believe those are not contradictory terms and with technique and proper attention to ingredients it is possible to create the balance. I started cooking at a very young age with my mother in Brazil and later went on to study Culinary Arts and Management in Scotland, Mexico City and Houston.
From my mother I acquired not just the love for cooking and preparing comfort food, but how to be creative with what was at hand. My culinary journey led me to start studying hospitality in Scotland, which cemented my love for cooking, I followed by going to Le Cordon Bleu in Mexico where I perfected my cooking skills culminating with the highest degree in both Culinary and Pastry as well as studying Mexican cuisine. I later capped my skills with a degree in Culinary Management at the Culinary Institute Lenôtre in Houston. Together these skills of creativity, cooking technique and understanding how to manage within the culinary field have allowed me to explore new and healthier ways to do comfort food in a style I call well prepared food, a new style that is simple and which does not sacrifice content and flavor and uses technique to create a healthier options that you will be happy to eat everyday and will make you feel good.
