“I am a financier by profession, I have just finished my master’s degree and starting my career. Culinary has been an integral part of my life for 6 years now. I have always liked the process of preparing dishes. Since childhood I watched various culinary shows and while studying for a bachelor’s degree I started preparing desserts, this is where our relation started. This year, during pandemics, I had an opportunity for the first time and a little free time to further develop my culinary skills. At the same time, with my friends’ great desire, I started sharing my recipes on a small culinary blog - - here you will find a variety of dishes and desserts, which I share with my subscribers with all my heart.” - Kato Lasareishvili
