We were at somebody's house. We talked about nothing important. Somebody said "Let's cook something". Apparently, when that was said everybody looked at me – I am always the first to be in the kitchen. They told me later that my face expression changed, I straightened up and I triggered my conditioned reflex – that of cooking. Besides that was in a perfect kitchen in which a record player was next to a frying pan... I feel the most free when cooking. It is enough for me to have a couple of vegetables to feel I have no limits, that I can fully unleash my expression. I can make something out of nothing. I am self-educated in this area as well, though I admit my fourth job in life was at a pizzeria.
Afterwards something changed in me: that was the germ of a culinary passion. I added, changed, invented. For three years – thanks to the Eat Beat project – I have been sinking into food and music. I remember I made tenderloin roasted in coconut with chocolate baked aubergine: a slice of aubergine and a slice of tenderloin on top. I looked at the faces of people that tried that – we all had a culinary orgasm. At that moment I realized I can cook, evoke emotions through food. I love cooking for people: it is them who tell me what to cook. I imagine who is going to come and I create according to that impression. I was even among a hundred chosen for Master Chef. I went for the qualifiers immediately after a party with the two-phase mango soup.
If you want to taste my food, I can come over to cook for you, feed your family or friends – let me know.
