Chef Monika Ninčević
Monika Ninčević is for sure one of the youngest Croatian chefs. She is only 20 and she is the chef de cuisine “No 20 Restaurant & Bar” in the ACI marina Piškera in the Kornati archipelago.
The young woman, who attended the famous culinary school Le Cordon Bleu in London, found in Dalmatia the opportunity to join the culinary scene. At the age of four she moved to Croatia from Australia with her parents, a Croatian father and a mother from Mauritius.
With a lot of courage, she started to create traditional Dalmatian dishes and desserts made of fresh local ingredients by giving them a personal touch and presenting them in an attractive way. In the restaurant’s kitchen Monika leads a team of 13 people, including her mother. Monika, whose love and passion for the sea, the nature, the food and the spices come from her mother’s and her father’s homelands, proves that neither age nor gender should be an obstacle to make your dreams come true. Her example could be of a great inspiration for all the young girls who dream of a job in gastronomy.
This is the reason why we are very proud to present her as the youngest Med Women Chefs ambassador.
