  • During his career, Dainius has had the opportunity to cook for a number of celebrities, including Usain Bolt, Marc Jacobs, and Ricardo Urgell, giving him interesting insights into the eating habits of famous people.
  • He loves traveling for food and his most exciting period in life was a five-month cooking trip by boat, exploring the exotic ingredients of the Atlantic coast and Caribbean islands.
  • Dainius is obsessed with the healthiest foods on the market, which inspired him to launch two healthy snack lines of his own.


For more than 13 years, Dainius has shared his passion for food and great service as a chef, business consultant, and, more recently, food writer. It was natural for him to combine his excellent communication skills with his in-depth knowledge of food science and technology, rich gastronomic history, and the finest ingredients. With his well-researched and skillfully written articles, Dainius continues on this newly forged path. Before joining Today Meal, he wrote for a number of food brands in Lithuania. Away from work, he enjoys spending time in nature and testing new recipes in his kitchen studio at home.


Dainius has a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Vilnius College of Design.
