About this site

grahkoHdG  web-zine  is built as a puzzle  – 47 chefs have been featured already and the number is growing. The chef’s profile is created slowly through different short features written specially for HdG by each of the featured chefs. These features enable us to explore the world of food through different subjects and people:

You can compare different views of chefs through different subjects – here is the initial Favourite Flavour:  https://hautdegamme.net/category/stories/

Or you can explore everything about a chef or a restaurant through our directory: https://hautdegamme.net/directory/

Chefs/restaurants are my personal choice which is not based only on cooking (even if that is of course primal) but includes a much wider combination of factors, between them their ethics.

HdG includes also fabulous meals (selection of the best lunches/dinners I had since the site was created), sustainability,  news and many other features (explore them in the menu of the site).

Enjoy exploring!

About me

andrejaI was more than 15 years working as designer and art director in advertising for some of the leading international advertising agencies before deciding to change my life’s journey and get engaged with the world of food which I was in love with since my very early age. My creative background is visible also through the concept of my page which is rather innovative (short features which you combine into longer units based on your personal interest) and very visual. My approach is a mixture between the journalistic and advertising and quite unique in that sense.

My food related activity started in Slovenia and Italy in 2010.  I worked with chefs, winemakers and food producers being in charge of communication and events.

In summer 2013 I moved to London with a great desire to grow and expand. Here I am still today enjoying this world and developing creative ways of communicating, building relations in the international food scene, connecting and opening new possibilities.
I see food not only as a pleasure for the palate but as a complex matter which starts with the farmers and food producers and continues with chefs, and which comprises also food related science, ecology, agronomy and much more.
First article on HdG was published only in autumn 2015, so there is still much more to come.
This web-zine is only one part of my work. Please feel free to contact me if you are a chef, a restaurant owner, a farmer, a food producer or in any other way related to food and you want to explore what can I do for you. You can contact me in English, Italian, German, Slovenian, Serbian or Croatian language.
Enjoy HdG!
