My name is Fred Avellar. I am a movie producer who became a chef.
I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Madrid, and I also attended specialization course at the Basque Culinary Center in San Sebastián. While working in the movie industry which makes dreams come true I decided to pursue my own dreams. For years I wondered about leaving the film set and entering a kitchen.
Having that in mind I created ‘Cozinha do Fred’ an Instagram account so that I could share my culinary experiences, and now, that I am back in Brazil, it grew and became a catering service and private chef.
Dinners, lunches, breakfasts, brunch, birthdays, engagements, corporate meetings, and many other options! An excellent gastronomy solution for social and corporate events.
My cuisine is based on Brazilian and French gastronomy with a strong contemporary trait and Spanish and Mediterranean touch. I like artisanal preparation and always work with fresh products, respecting their nature, in an organic and sustainable way, following the seasonality of the ingredient.
Cooking means love and care. It is about dedicating my time and full attention for my clients. It is being responsible for their happiness and delight. Cooking means respect to the ingredient to be prepared and served and thus cheering the guest who will taste the meal.
