“I’m Niniko and my childhood dream was only related to cooking. My passion for cooking started at a very young age. I was 4 years old when my grandmother sewed a small apron for me. When she used to put that apron on me, then the great things began. I keep it with great love since then, it evokes amazing memories in me. When my grandmother took me to the market for the first time, I was even greatly interested in choosing a product, then I was drawing products, writing recipes in my own words.

Most of all I love the process of preparing the dish, which is accompanied by a very interesting - waiting phase. When you anticipate that something very tasty will be prepared. It’s a great happiness   when you can feed your loved ones with delicious dish. What could be better than that?

As for my profession, I work as sponsorship project manager at the Association SOS Children’s Village of Georgia. One of our most important areas is providing alternative care to children deprived of care. I love this work with all my heart and I am glad to make good things. I am also glad that I will soon teach our children how to cook.

Oh, I’ve nearly forgotten about Covid-19 pandemic. During the pandemic I participated in a grand Master-chef project. It was then that I realized that I had to follow my destination to the end and to learn more. Today I will share you French cake, which I used to prepare. I hope you will like it!
