Joel Waje

Joel Waje is one of several taste developers at Santa Maria. He comes from a family filled with professional and hobby cooks and cookbook writers, and he knew early that food would be in focus of his career.

Joel has a long experience as a restaurant chef and his philosophy is to put the vegetables in focus and to choose meat, fish or poultry more as an accessory. As a child, Joel gladly helped the parents with the vegetable cultivation and for him it is important to not let anything go to waste; Even a crooked carrot is a good carrot.

Santa Maria is a part of the world food and flavouring division of Paulig group
