I have a critical understanding of how cooking works. I am proficient in fire management using wood-fired ovens and charcoal-fired grills. I operate best under pressure when the ability to multi-task is most crucial. My palate is highly sensitive to how to maintain a good balance of flavors when creating items savory or sweet. When temperatures go up and the pressure is on, I'm the best sort of team player; having worked BOH, FOH, baking and pastry, I understand the needs of my co-workers.
While away from the hustle of a busy restaurant hot line, I enjoy the tranquility and challenges of chocolate and confectionery work. I love creating new chocolates and candies for people to enjoy. Chocolate work is a blank canvas that allows me to create new and exotic flavor combinations. My customers can choose from a wide range of possibilities, including personalized chocolates showcasing a company’s logo or individual chocolate boxes for those very special occasions.
