Pursuing a career in cookery really opened my eyes to diverse cultures and allowed me to meet new people from different social and cultural backgrounds. I have really matured and become more accepting of different cultures.
I believe basic cooking skills are important life skills everyone should learn. When I'm hungry thirsty, I like to cook and get creative with the limited ingredients laying around in the fridge.
I've always loved cooking and getting cooked. Being a chef means work dominates a big part of your week and makes it hard to have a work life balance. But creating good relationships with colleagues and loving what I do makes the working week more enjoyable.
