David studied in Malta at the Institute of Tourism Studies and later was taught by some great teachers. He then set out to be a master chef. His first love was Mediterranean and Sicilian cuisine. Cooking up amazing meals with fine olive oil and fresh basil was his tour de force. His education and job search led him to London where he honed his skills cooking in hotels and restaurants throughout Europe. It was at one of the gigs where he met his future wife, a fellow chef from the very cold but beautiful Sweden. As it happens, in her home town there is a famous hotel with a superb kitchen and it was there that they settled with David as a sous chef.
