My first culinary attempts were in the family. I remember well a special time in the kitchen with my aunt, because we used to make the most delicious doughnuts. The latter became my first baked goods.  When I was young, I dreamt of being a basketball player, but I was not tall enough. Looking back, I realise that more and more often the basketball court was replaced by helping my mother prepare dinner or just messing around in the kitchen.  The important and fundamental thing in my life was and is that I am a city kid. I was born and grew up in Vilnius, and I think the life of the capital has shaped my worldview. I didn't want a quiet and simple everyday life, I realised that I wanted more. I wanted challenges, adventures, because I was young and everything seemed more than possible. When my friends were going to university, I bought plane tickets. That's where my travels began, but not only around the world, but also towards professional cuisine.
