My passion is to inspire others with my dishes
The biggest fight of my life is not to stop and to reinvent myself each day.
I am inspired by the world as such. Wherever I go, I get inspired by art, but also by architecture, by the nature, by music and by the people.
When I am down, I get up and keep going.
I fear that life is too short to have been everywhere.
Winning is as important as losing.
To the people fighting CF I wish courage, strength, hope and a lot of fun while cooking our dish.
