TEA DUKIC

Growing up in a family that loved to travel and explore new tastes, I was exposed to many different cousins during my childhood and that definitely sparked an interest in me which later developed into my passion and profession. My enchantment with exploring different cultures and cuisines continued growing during my studies in Switzerland. After graduating in International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management in Cesar Ritz University, I spent a few years working in a 5*star hotels around Europe and Asia where I continued to work, travel and educate myself on different foods and cuisines. My biggest passion was the connection between culture and food and how we can learn so much about the culture and history just from a plate of modest traditional food cooked at home.Upon returning to my home county I started the radio show "With Spoon around the world" and I spent the next 10 years running a kitchen in different vegan restaurants and hotels in Croatia.
My love and passion for food and cooking still grows each day and I am happy to be able to share it with the beautiful people that I cook for.
