Cris is excited to be representing his country at the WorldSkills International Competition saying “I am so grateful to WorldSkills Australia for this opportunity and very excited to be chosen,” he continued saying “I’m always trying to push myself that little bit extra to perfect my dishes.”

Cris discovered cooking through his family, explaing “my mother, father and grandparents love to cook, they are not involved in the cooking industry. However, I took that passion when I was younger and pursued it as a career through school and workplacements.”

When asked what Cris’s favourite part of was he explained, “there is always something new to learn, the best chefs will go out of their way, out of their comfort zone to learn new things.”
