Trainer, entrepreneur, TV host and consultant, Dorian Lungu will form part of the jury for the European Young Chef Award 2019, organised in Rhodes (South Aegean, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2019) on 22-24 October.
Passionate about innovation, mixed cultures and chocolate, he specialised in management of intercultural learning at the Council of Europe and became a trainer for projects based in the South East of Europe.
Dorian is the owner of Luado Chocolate, the only artisan chocolate producer from Brasov, located in the middle of Romania. He is also member of Rotary International and other regional NGOs and networks that create local, regional and national strategies for cultural, gastronomic and economic development.
Committed to promote local and European values, Dorian holds professional degrees in engineering and managements, and works in the design and implementation of communication and branding campaigns for companies and quality products.
Dorian’s recommendation to the finalist of the European Young Chef Award 2019 is: “You should always aim to do better so, instead of planning your next holiday, it’s better to build a life from which you’ll never want to escape. To achieve this, you need two ingredients: to love what you’re doing and to never give up on this.”
