#42 in Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019

Always when I opened the restaurant, I felt like something was empty. I was just cooking there and I was not worrying about what my producer was eating in their home, what I can do for the society, what I can do for the community. ‘I cannot change the world,’ now I know I can. If we are in a team we can, and you have to start off in your community, where you come from.

#9 at Best Chef’s Award 2019, #13 at The Worlds 50 Best 2019

Long ago I realized that sharing the skills and knowledge is a vitally important habit. It provides a circulation of energy and makes you happy. I will feel happy if we manage to motivate these students and someone will have a wish to become one of us. We can not help all, but if we help at least one of the students, it means that we managed to do a great job.

All participants were super enthusiastic and excited each day. For them, it was an opportunity to gain relevant skills, to socialize, and to feel that someone really cared about their future. Some of them didn’t even know how to cut vegetables on the first day of the project. But during the final exam, all of them looked very confident in the kitchen and cooked on a very good level.

Each group is a different experience. It’s a fortune to see the evolution of each person, and to see the impulse they get day by day. Some of them just need a little bit of trust to get the best from them and go chase their dreams.

My advice is that if you have the opportunity to join the program you must take advantage of it because it will change your mind and you will gain more knowledge. On top of that, the program will enable you to take control of your career in a professional way and give you more chances and opportunities.

The most magical thing is to realize that the students have so much knowledge and experience of their own, and they don’t even realize that. I have the chance to learn as much as they do.

Vanya

Like a Chef Graduate 2018, Moscow

I entered this project to learn something new, to find more about the secrets of cooking. Our mentor not only shares with us his skills but also encourages us, and helps us decide who we want to be in the future. In my opinion, a chef should be serious and strict. Those who really try can achieve what they want. Those who don’t try hard enough, find obvious excuses. In the kitchen, I feel relaxed. I am a Chef.

Dulcineia

Like a Chef Graduate 2017, Curitiba

This course really brought me back, rescued my dream, my gift, and today I’m very focused. I’m going to work on it and that’s what I want. If I had not gone through all that I went through, I would not have come to [Like a Chef]. I would not have known this project that is so important.
