What’s your name?
My name is Jamai, I am 20 years old
Where are you from?
I live in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Why and how did you get Skillability platform? So which is your challenge?
I would like to share my cooking and creativity skills and teach my secret recipes. You can get to
know the Dutch cuisine better everyday and have an idea on new tastes.
If you have some old furniture that you think deserves a new life, feel free to contact me. You can
check my profile on the Skilltalent platform to know my contact details and see some of my work!
Which is your talent? What is your skill that you are proud of?
One of my hobbies is cooking. I studied gastronomy anc culinary art in Rotterdam. I love to cook and
make people eat my foods. I’m also working in a resturant, I started to cook when I was 8 years old.
Basically people were saying about the Dutch cuisine , “We don’t know anything about the Dutch
cuisine, we thought there were not any traditional food.”
Why should everybody have to join the platform?
I wanted to show Dutch cuisine to people who don’t know. Dutch cuisine actually is really rich and
composed of many cultures. I started professionally cooking when I finish my vocational school
education on gastronomy. I was so happy to start to work in a resturant that people could taste my
food and special dishes. When I cook it is like a meditation for me. I’m not cooking at the same time
I’m creating an art with food.
