When did you fall in love with cheffing and how did you get started?
I've wanted to be a chef since I was a kid. I feel really lucky that I knew what I wanted to do when I was really young. It saves so much time in the process. I started cooking school in Belgium when I was 15 years old.
Who was or still is your mentor?
My Mentors are the people around me on a daily basis, helping me to become a better person everyday and not just a chef. I think as a chef you need to be surrounded with people from all areas that are great at what they do, it's really inspiring.
If there was one-piece advice you could give to a person aspiring to be a chef, what would it be?
