The Masterchef Experience
I decided to compete in UK Masterchef the Professionals immediately after I finished my degree at Le Corden Bleu. I felt very strong because I was able to cook with anything that was in front of me. It was something that people thought, Luciana you crazy, how can you apply when you haven’t even worked in Michelin restaurants, you don’t have much experience. But I was feeling confident! I really wanted to show what I was made of and represent the school that gave me a lot of power to feel that I could compete.
For Luciana, creativity is one of the most important factors when recreating Brazilian dishes. By experimenting with a range of ingredients, textures and tastes, she is able to offer new and exciting dishes to suit all her clients’ needs.
