About Nina Popova, Chef at café Centaur

I’m 54. I’ve been working as a cook for 9 years. My milestone is chef at café “Centaur” I worked as a cook for several years right after I finished school, as I liked to cook since childhood. But I had to change my occupation. I tried a range of professions until I finally understood that cooking is my lifework. My favourite cuisine is Ukrainian, because it’s close to me since childhood. Moreover, I took over some traditions from my mother and grandmother. All my hobbies are one way or another connected with cooking. I like to experiment, try new products, and create new dishes. I like to invent new ways of serving traditional dishes.
