About the Author Mischa de Winter

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa. Having had the desire to be a pilot most of my childhood, fascinated by the thrill of flying, a career in food wasn’t the obvious choice. I developed a passion for cooking when I learned the basics from my mom, the best family cook I know. Being the only bloke in my high school to study home economics, discovering my eyesight wouldn’t be good enough for a career in flying and enjoying messing about in the kitchen were reasons enough to fuel my culinary passions. In 2001, I graduated from the prestigious Silwood School of Cookery in Cape Town, with a Grande Diploma. I also worked in a number of top restaurants and hotels, further honing my craft. I moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands, to further my career. I spent time working in various hotels and restaurants expanding my repertoire and styles of cooking. I then moved on to a cooking school where I spent a number of years as chef having had the opportunity to share my passion with many others. mischa@amsterdamflavours.com When we’re not creating new recipes and searching for the best places and products to feature on Amsterdam Flavours, we still do our caterings, private dinners and cooking lessons.
