“Cooking is for me a moment of sharing, conviviality and reunion because in my opinion, there is nothing warmer than meeting with friends and family around a table to enjoy good food.”
Léa Kanarski is the young chef who represented Hauts-de-France, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2023 at the European Young Chef Award 2021.
19 years old, Léa is currently preparing her second year of the Higher Technician’s Certificate in Hospitality Management, Catering Option Cuisine. A very determined young chef, after her professional diploma she is planning to take a master’s degree to get all the qualifications needed to open her own business and train future cooks.
Passionate about cooking since the age of 5, Léa is always looking for new flavours, as well as new professional experiences to develop her technical knowledge and creativity.
The inspiration for her dishes comes from the fact that she likes what she does and she tries to do everything possible to bring softness and colours to her recipes by playing with textures and tastes.
