Ákos Sárközi learned to cook from his mother, and to this day he often draws inspiration from family recipes. At the beginning of his career, he lived daily life as a simple chef, and then, thanks to a lucky coincidence, he was admitted to the Alabárdos restaurant in the fall of 2006. This is where he first came across the concept of top gastronomy. During this period, a new approach to hospitality began to emerge in Hungary.
“I was introduced to new technologies and raw materials. These changes had a big impact on me: a new world unfolded. The couple of weeks spent in Vila Joya, Portugal, two Michelin-starred, were shocked by the need for similar hospitality in Hungary.”
In 2010, He got the opportunity to run the kitchen of a newly opened restaurant, the Wine Kitchen.
“I threw myself into the first job as a chef in my life with a lot of fear and excitement.”
