Interview with Anna Romanova
What made you want to study in this field?
The desire to be inside of the restaurant, to see how things work, and to be able to observe it from different angles.
What is your favourite memory from your adventure at Le Cordon Bleu Institute in Paris?
I enjoyed working on my restaurant concept and working on the business plan.
Could you tell us briefly about your career path?
I stay at the place where I did my internship. At the end of the internship I was asked to do the business plan of the new restaurant concept which was approved and after I was proposed the post of “chef de projet”. Which I accepted and now I am working on developing and opening a restaurant.
What advice would you give to future cuisine students?
Not to be too obsessed with the "big" names. Sometimes it's better to go to a small place, you will have more opportunities to study. And be ready to do a lot of things that might seem to be not important but there is a sense it so it's better to take it easy.
Could you describe your new life in Paris?
I am still in Akrame. Will be in touch if working on new projects and doing financial analysis.
What are your plans for the future?
Nothing special. To go with the flow!
