My name is Yohan Goutt Goncalves, I'm a two-time Olympic skier (2014, 2018) and the first athlete to compete for Timor-Leste (East Timor) at the Winter Olympics. Now living in Paris!

While I am not a cook, I would like to introduce you to my country's food - a blend of Portuguese and Indonesian style of spices. You may get to meet my mom Carolina as well, who was the team manager at the Games!

This was my first online experience with Airbnb and I was not sure what to expect but it was super fun and I learned many things about Yohan and Carolina’s cooking and culture. Both were kind and patient with me. Overall great experience!

Cooking with Carolina and Yohan was really amazing! They were both really fun and nice and we learned a lot about Timor and their culture and cuisine. If you're looking for some good food and fun conversation, you've definitely found it here!
