It’s not a secret that tasting new food and experiencing new flavours are some of the moments I most appreciate in life, but once I starting thinking…. Why not enjoying cuisine not only from the table but also from the kitchen?
Cuisine is not only applying certain techniques, it is also a different way of art that can also be influenced by roots or idiosyncrasy. I feel excited about being able to express myself in some other way and apply bit only my Iranian background but also many of my international experiences, including Spanish (that goes without saying) to my creations. Just realized that as my dream, but… how could I do that?
I enrolled in one of the best culinary art schools in the world, but how about the location?
I wanted new experiences and combine my international background, so London became the chosen place. London is a large cosmopolitan city that can be a great inspiration for anyone and particularly for someone who is devoted to cuisine.
Here I am! I am in London, in a great school, learning how to become a chef and although I am working long hours I am HAPPY.
I can’t wait to combine my culinary skills with entrepreneurial and management skills that I learnt at IE and create my own unique space.
That is all for the moment, I keep you up with my news but just say that although I am not a master yet I can show you some of my creations, but don’t think it’s a piece of cake
