My name is Sjaan and I am a professionally trained chef, specialised in vegan and vegetarian cuisine. I live in Andalucía, southern Spain, with my partner John and our dog Río.  I traveled and cooked all over the world for a few years, before I landed here in Spain. Originally I am from The Netherlands.

Besides cooking I am interested in yoga (iyengar, ashtanga and Heinz Grill’s method) and meditation. I love to be in nature. Also I want to learn more about gardening and growing vegetables and herbs. Learning new languages is also a fun thing to do. My goal at the moment is to master the Spanish language, but Greek and Japanese would be great to learn too!
