About Chef Gabriella
Chef Gabriella began working in restaurants in Cardiff when she was 15 years old, and she’s been on an incredible journey ever since. We first met Gabriella when she entered - and won! - the UK & Ireland Junior World Chocolate Masters competition in 2017. She has also been named The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts “Young Pastry Chef of The Year.” Her talent and passion have taken her all over Europe, to the Far East, and the Caribbean. She teaches masterclasses, offers consulting, and provides catering for events. She also works with cocoa farmers and producers to develop recipes for delicious chocolates.
