Upon graduation, Morozin worked on the lines of prestigious kitchens in Philadelphia. There, Morozin acquired his influence of cooking in a high volume kitchen, but also found his true passion: cooking.
Mediterranean cuisine was his calling, which led Morozin to another established fine dining restaurant, Espuma, where he flourished under James Beard nominated chef Jay Caputo. It was at this time where Morozin further pursued his favorite oceanic ingredients by crafting elaborate plates and further maximizing his culinary talents in such a reputable restaurant.
