Experiences

I want to introduce you to some of the restaurants the I have been fortunate enough to dine in.

Since I was 18 I have always enjoyed on dining out, I have always appreciated sitting on the other side of the door. MPW once described Nico Ladenis as a true Gastronomes, he claimed this is why he ran such a great restaurant. Marco was right, I strongly believe that all chefs should eat out and experience what their peers bring to the table.

Investment in your career is something that I hold in high regard, whether it is through books, knives, whites or dining out. Listed below is a list that I am very proud of; the star rating is of course a reference to the Michelin Guide. I’m not a critic and I do not plan on posting reviews on my experiences, I’ll always answer a question if you want to tweet me
