Hi! My name is Mauricio Torselli, I am from Brazil and I recently graduated from culinary school. I'm starting a new venue as a private chef. I am much interested in modernist cuisine, even being so hard to find the products here in Brazil (and being so expensive also). Bought a starter kit in a travel to Chicago (and a wonderful dinner in Alinea) and started to play around. I love regional cuisine, specially asian food (thai, indian and vietnamese). I would love to try to come up with modernist approach into traditional asian cuisine. As a curiosity, I am also a professional magician (this is what pay my bills right now) For some time I intended to register at eGullet - finally I'm here. Think that's it for now. Sorry for any mistakes, since english is not my native language. Cheers! Mauricio.
