I am originally from Moscow, and relocated to New York at a young age. While in NYC, I worked under Daniel Bouloud and later moved to Paris, where I lived in Julia Child's apartment and learnt French way of living !!!!
Always inspired by Japan, I headed to Tokyo where I worked with Zaiyu Hasegawa at DEN, a two Michelin star restaurant which was named TOP 50 Best Restaurants in Asia. My biggest mentor was Pascal Aussignac, who I had the pleasure of working with in his Michelin star restaurant Club Gascon in London. I have spent every summer since my childhood on the coast of Italian Liguria and learned how to make fresh pastas. Additionally, I have 10 + years of private chef experience, collaborations and food styling. I offer private plated dinners, small/large gatherings.
I am extremely passionate about quality on all levels and work to ensure that all the elements within the event are as perfect as possible. I focus on seasonal ingredients (farmers markets, trusted butchers like Ottomanelli Brothers and fishmongers like Citarella, Chelsea Market and Dorian's). I will make sure that your event will be absoutely fabulous and work with you to ensure that everything goes absolutely perfect and according to your taste and preferences! I am fully vaccinated and have a booster and very cautious!
I would provide the staff as well to make sure everything smoothly and professional.
Please feel free to ask to modify the menu or shoot me a message so we can work around it. I promise you a fabulous evening! Looking forward to cooking for you!
