Andrii and Tetiana are a married couple from the city of Kharkiv in Ukraine. They don't just share mutual love but from recently they also have in common a passion for cooking. Their story is a perfect example how it's never too late to discover the real vocation in us. Tetiana was the owner of the marketing agency, originally a journalist by profession, and Andrii owned company for office furniture. As successful entrepreneurs they came to the personal and professional saturation and decided to completely change their lives and search for new challenges. They decided to replace busy city life, stressful business meetings with studying for Professional Cooks of Italian Cuisine at Kul IN and ALMA. Turning back to school was good for them so they could realize that their real true love is actually cooking. Since there is so much learning ahead of Tetiana and Andriia they calle themselves gastrovirgins. Although the gastrovirgins are at their fresh start they are so fascinated with cooking and Croatia that they decided after studies in Italy to come back and open their own restaurant. If you would like to follow Tetiana's and Andrii's studying in Italy and all their adventures and experiences from opening a restaurant in Croatia you can check out their facebook page called How we opened a restaurant in Croatia.
