Our Chef's & Our love for food
Veljko cooked for the Hollywood legend Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely in Komiža, Vis
during the film making of the “Mamma Mia“.
Veljko is a well educated chef, who is awared at numerous culinary competitions. His career sums up 20 years of Dalmatian – Mediteranean based cuisine, which iscarried out in a modern presentation, providing an original culinary signature and experience.
“My cuisine demands the finest of groceries, a proper dose of spices, as well as
the fusion of traditional and modern techniques. However, one indispensable ingredient of my dishes is a spoon full of love, just as I got one in support of my life and work partner, who is our pastry chef Vlasta. Our story began at the very moment I saw her for the first time, when she entered the room where I was holding one of my culinary workshops. Enchanted by her appearance I couldn’t let her go. Since then, our ideas and mutual affection for gastronomy are growing stronger in pace with our love. I hope that guests of the Olife restaurant will taste that trough pastries and meals we create for them.“
