Hey, I’m Natalia Rudakova a.k.a Chef Rudakova. It took me 10 years of working in finance & accounting to finally give myself a permission to hit a pause and follow my culinary passion. In 2018 I’ve enrolled into a traditional full-time culinary school, where I’ve learned some fundamental, basic skills and the same year I’ve dived deep into the real industry. Let’s just say, it was a shock to my system. It was hard. I did not start my cooking journey at the age of 16, I was just a regular human being pursuing a regular, “safe”, stable career before deciding to give my cooking dreams a go.

Real cooking is about respecting food, it’s about understanding the techniques and general principles behind any food preparation method, thus enabling you to implement these techniques in any circumstances and freely manipulate recipes. Most importantly, cooking is a never-ending journey, and it’s all about continuous learning.

That’s the secret. And that’s exactly what I’m teaching in my online culinary school. 

Nowadays, I successfully practice as a Head Chef in Canada, combining it with my other passion for teaching by sharing my accumulated culinary knowledge and expertise with my audience of over 100k people on social media (YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Gronda etc.) and with over 5k of my dear students throughout my online culinary courses.
