Born in Ukraine, has been pursuing the dream of a cultured and modern cuisine since childhood.
The work, or in his view "art", to work with fresh seasonal food makes the enthusiasm in him beat faster.
Together with his wife he left Ukraine and at the age of 18 decided to study in a foreign country - Italy.
After his successful graduation as a chef, large kitchens were already running under his management and the idea of creativity found space.
Martin quickly found a place where he could live out his passion and did so in one of the most renowned Italian restaurants in Hamburg.
The employment as a kitchen director provided him with further opportunities to distinguish himself with his unique, creative views and thus bring Spezzagrano to life.
