Chef Alena Solodovichenko Invites You to Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2020

Meet Alena Solodovichenko.

She began working in professional kitchens at 17. Now the Executive Chef of 20 famous Russian homestyle restaurants called Varenichnaya #1, she knows about the fate of women in the kitchen better than anyone.
 

Alena Solodovichenko dreamed of becoming a cook since childhood. Under the guidance of her grandmother, she took her first culinary steps. At just 17, she began her career in professional kitchens, progressing through every step of career growth: from Pastry Chef to an Executive Chef.

In 2019, Alena published her first recipe book entitled “Miss Varenichnaya”. It sold out in just two months after the book’s release. Her second book is currently being prepared for publication.

See you in St. Petersburg.

“In employees, I value most of all their drive and a desire to learn new things. Everyone, throughout their life, should always develop and discover something new.”
