I like to explore past the border, see beyond, break the rules and innovate always with an open mind, falling in love with other cultures and their gastronomic ways. My first trip to Colombia brought an immense amount of new flavours, aromas and textures to play with! an inspiring opportunity.
Don’t get me wrong, I realize fusion cuisine has been around since the very first clash of human cultures but to me it just meant more ingredients to have fun with à ma façon, respecting the foundations and cultural meaning of each while at the same time unleashing and honouring it for its culinary potential - in the end ingredients are just that, ingredients... waiting to be exhalted (or not!) combined, mixed, liquefied, baked, burnt, etc; but most importantly, tasted!
The same way mexican tomatoes and chillies made their way to indian and italian cuisine, other ingredients are waiting to be discovered, and I want to make part of this narrative through my passion.
