Milen Zlatev


Chef Instructor

Chef Milen is one of the talented graduates of HRC Culinary Academy. He joined the Academy at 2009 after several years of culinary experience at different restaurants and hotels in Bulgaria.

An interesting highlight of his career is his experience as a private chef of the Algerian ambassador and his family in their residences in Bulgaria.

Besides the various upscale restaurants and hotels he worked at in Bulgaria, he also has rich international background, working at a 5-star hotel at Doha, Qatar part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Hotel Villa Ruimzicht – Netherlands. Later on he worked as a chef de partie at restaurant Clos Maggiore, which is an outstanding restaurant with contemporary French-influenced cuisine and a winner of “London's most romantic restaurant”.

The French cuisine is one of his favorite and not surprisingly it will influence the new menu at the Academy`s restaurant - Talents, where he trains the 3-rd semester students.
