Meet Our New Lecturers - Morana Mijač

"Food means socializing, it is the source of sustainability, it represents the celebration of life, comfort and pleasure. A person who cooks is a person who gives. It is not just about the act of cooking – culinary arts is so much more than that. It is about the transformation of both chefs and food. Food can be an inspiration, and it is more about the process than just plating. My first love and passion, the love that has been with me since my childhood, is the love of food and the unity it symbolizes. That love is why I fell in love with cooking. And when you fall in love, everything else is easy. "
