What can we expect about reinventing fast food from chefs now? Do you have any interests to go ‘more’ casual?
I do have interest in going more casual for sure. I want to do something that can reach a larger amount of people, that most people can try. Casual, good, fun and using the best product we can…..maybe in the future.

Where do you go shopping?
Great shopping is in Rio Sul.
