My Story

Hi, my name is Andreea Apostol. I was born in Romania into a family of creatives - my mom is a fashion designer, my dad is an architect, and my grandma is a painter. Growing up, I was always very independent and authentic.

I became a chef in 2012 and began sharing my love for cooking with children. However, my perspective on food shifted in 2016 when I became more conscious about what I consume and how it impacts my body. As a result, I underwent training from one of the top Raw Vegan Chefs, Sayuri Tanaka, and became a skilled raw vegan chef. I also enrolled in several other courses and online vegan courses from world-renowned chefs like Matthew Kenney and Amy Levi.

 

I am a freelance chef specializing in raw and plant-based cuisine. I have curated menus, cooked meals for various Macau wellness events, and even organized plant-based retreats. Through my teachings, I have had the pleasure of instructing over 1000 students from ages 10 to 60 on the art of cooking and consuming healthy plant-based meals.

 

I have had the privilege of being invited as a guest speaker to several esteemed local  and international events and conducting masterclasses at the Culinary Academy. During my time in Macau, I had the pleasure of preparing nutritious plant-based meals for Franco Dragone's artists, athletes, and staff while they were performing.

 

My determination and passion led me to be nominated and win the Great Taste Award 2018 (Anti-Additive Great Taste Award)
