My name is Nino, I am a financier by profession and have worked in this profession for many years . Since I was a child, I have loved making sweets. For a long time it was my hobby, but then I decided to turn it into a profession and enrolled in the Culinary Academy of the Georgian Agrarian University to a pastry chef course. After graduating this course, I worked in several well-known hotels and pastry shops, and finally, together with a friend, I opened the Bakery Cheesecaker, which offers a wide range of cheesecakes and various desserts.
I am also a lecturer at the Culinary Academy, where I teach students of the chef program the pastry technology.
