Cooking was always a passionate hobby for me. I was a mechanical engineer back in Venezuela, but I enrolled in several pastry courses throughout the years. You know, it’s always a good idea to have the ability to switch your profession – a back up. You never know what can happen, what is out of your control. My country fell apart, we had to leave everything and resettle where I didn’t speak the language and couldn’t practice my trade. I started in restaurant kitchens from the bottom, and I’m hoping with time and hard work, there will be growth.
