A few words by…
I am a pastry chef
I became a pastry chef since my conversion in 2015. It was on this date that I started taking classes at the Ferrandi gastronomic school in Paris. Needless to say I was far from imagining that it would become a passion and nowadays my full-time job.
I learned from the best, among which the chef Olivier HAUSTRAETE who collaborated with the greatest such as Alain Ducasse and Claire HEİTZLER (Ladurée) in France and Japan. I discovered a subtle and fragile human chain starting from the farmer himself to the chef in his or her kitchen, including the manufacturers and craftsmen in the food industry.
I am currently working as the pastry chef at the “Bistrot Français” in Istanbul. I am looking to develop my activity and organize events with other chefs. I constantly pursue my training in contact with other chefs so as to improve my technique and gain (even more) experience.
It turns out that what truly matters is not knowing everything but continuing to learn. You can accomplish new projects (even late in life) but the most important thing is to believe in yourself and dare to make that first step.
It is this desire that I hope to transmit to you as well!
“Good food is the basis of true happiness.” – Auguste Escoffier
