My name is Pascal, i am 40 years old and i have been living in Da Nang Vietnam since middle of 2017.
I was born and raised in a little village in eastern Switzerland. I moved to Zurich when I turned 21, where I lived and worked for more than 15 years.
I am a highly professional, enthusiastic, committed and responsible chef with 15 years of experience, gravy in the gearbox and with the celery in the right place. I have worked in various positions as Chef de Partie, Sous Chef, Head Chef and as Executive Chef for a variety of businesses such as restaurants, hotels and event catering. I strongly believe it needs a lot of passion to work as a chef over a long period of time. I still love to cook and guess, that I could never do something else.
I am a creative thinker, very detail-orientated and attentive, a pleasant and hard working person with a passion for great food and extraordinary creations. I like to cook delicious dishes with fresh and seasonal ingredients from the local market. Sustainability and a respectful handling of food is very important to me.
Due to the seasonal employment and temporary work contracts during the past few years i was able to travel for at least two months a year. I am very grateful for these opportunities and the very great experience I have had.
I like to explore new places and meet new people. Knowing different cultures, beliefs and traditions, how people think or live on their own means and ways.
Those travels experiences in south-east Asia, in Brazil and in some parts of Europe provided me an insight into a very wide and absolutely amazing food and dining culture. Especially the Vietnamese street food culture impressed me deeply and inspired me in many ways. The way of living and cooking on the streets of Asia changed my view and understanding of food and dining culture fundamentally...
This web pages are created to deliver you a small insight into my work and to give you an understanding of my humble person.
