Pasta with smoked cheese, almonds and pumpkin
30-60 Min

I am 20 years old, born and raised in Tbilisi. at the age of 16 I decided to study in France, first finished school there and then enrolled in one of France's culinary schools. My first internship was at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant in Bordeaux where I spent unforgettable 5 months. I had an opportunity ti learn everything a beginner cook needs, and after that, I returned back to Georgia for a while. I participated in one of the culinary shows, then worked as a junior sous chef at the French restaurant "Laduree"; After that, I was invited to the Michelin star restaurant of Guy Savoy where I gained even more knowledge. I am currently participating in the show - Masterchef. I plan to go to Italy in the near future to deepen my knowledge and gain more experience. When I have enough knowledge and experience, I will definitely open my Georgian restaurant in France.
