Meet Vladislav Penov, a culinary artist whose journey began with childhood fascination for his family’s flavorsome meals. From humble beginnings, he honed his skills across prestigious Bulgarian restaurants before seeking international exposure at Bristol’s Brasserie Blanc. However, it was his culinary odyssey at Copenhagen’s Relae, alongside luminaries like Magnus Nilson and Christian Puglisi, that sparked a cosmic transformation. As executive head chef and co-owner of Cosmos restaurant, Vladislav blends traditional Bulgarian cuisine with a touch of “space oddity”, offering guests an ethereal dining experience that defies labels and transports taste buds on celestial journey.
