I’ve always cooked, since I was a kid. At that time I tried a bunch of weird combinations such as mixing jam with cream and mustard to make a sauce. I can not remember the taste, but apparently it has marked my father.
Later when I was studying cinematography, I cooked for my girlfriends to impress, but as I was cooking fat, they quickly pushed me as an assistant in the kitchen.
I became a producer and in 2006 I had to produce a movie where we were shooting in restaurant kitchens. That’s were I had a revelation, so during the two days of shooting I’ve tasted, observe, and learn a lot of things. At home, I tried to repeat what I saw and since I cook almost every day.
My trick is to cook by feeling, I’m never follow a recipe, sometimes you got miracles, sometimes you have to throw it away.
