Private chef teaching you professional cooking skills & recipes from around the globe

Methodology

My teaching method is very interactive and relaxed. I love to teach and make people comfortable. A typical class with me would involve me preparing a recipe, and letting students stop me at anytime to ask a question. In my class, students can learn knife skills, how to make certain knife cuts, how to improvise when they're missing an ingredient...there's so much to teach!
I think everybody can cook, and I like to enhance those basic skills. Everyone likes to impress those they love with a new recipe or a fancy garnish that can take a dish to the next level.

Background

My experience in food services spans over 23 years. Being passionate cooks, my mother and brother instilled within me a deep appreciation for quality meals at a young age. During my adolescence, my first jobs were in food courts and restaurants, experiences that affirmed my desire to complete formal culinary training at the Institut de tourisme et d'h么tellerie du Qu茅bec. With entrepreneurial spirit springing forth, I launched a catering company. Longing for adventure, I became a globetrotter that lived abroad in many wonderful exotic places including Thailand, Australia, Italy and Israel. These travels taught me exquisite flavour pairings that I now share at home in Montreal.
