I'm a professional chef and a pastry chef. Graduated with two diplomas (Chef de Cuisine and Chef Patissier) from Le Cordon Bleu Paris in 2014, I spent next three years working in Parisian and New York high-end restaurants and pastry shops, such as Thoumieux (2 Michelin stars, Paris), Vaucluse and Mah-ze-Dahr (New York). I also ran a custom cake business in New York for a year and can teach you how to make 3 tier wedding cake from A to Z.

I'm an adherent of seasonal and healthy cooking so I would love to teach you how to cook not only delicious and good-looking dishes but also ones that make your body feel good and not guilty. Even if this recipe you would love to cook so much is calling for unhealthy ingredients- I'll show you tips and tricks how to swap for wholesome ones.

Little more about my pastry background- I specialize in French pastries and cake production. If you always wanted to learn, how to make this beautiful mirror glazed cake or chocolate tart you saw on IG- I will show you the easiest and fun way to achieve the same result.

If you have a recipe, you'd like me to teach you how to make- it's wonderful! If you don't, I would love to create one (or even the whole menu) for you based on your food preferences, that we can discuss in advance. And don't worry if you don't have special equipment- years of "chefing" in tiny New York kitchens taught me how to improvise, and I'd love to share this knowledge with you.
