“Culinary has always filled me with positive emotions and energy since childhood. I was brought up in a very traditional family having particular interest in Georgian cuisine. When I was a child, I tried to weave in my own part in the traditional cooking. The preparation of jams in a non-traditional way was the materialization of this childhood desire and from here the adventure of creating “Aroma” starts.  I haven’t studied at any culinary school, and I have never attended any courses. Although many probably see this as a barrier, this made my cooking abilities unlimited. I am free from any “stamps” and I always give full scope to my imagination. I have been a vegetarian for 22 years already, but that is not an obstacle either. For me this lifestyle, along with physical training is a source of energy and a natural condition, without which I can no longer imagine my routine. I think that today promoting healthy lifestyle is one of the most important issues and this is my goal actually.” - Nino Tvalavadze.
