The GastronomiX will bring together world names famous in the culinary world. Among them is Paolo Cassagrande, chef of the "Lasarte" restaurant in Barcelona, holding 3 Michelin stars. In his early years he used to work in restaurants in Italy and mastered his skills in Milan, London and Paris. Appointed at the forefront of the Ritz-Carlton M.

Having conducted prestigious restaurants in England, Dubai, Japan and the Maldives, currently he is the director of the Culinary Academy Le Cordon Bleu in London. Chief Minev is responsible for the selection of teachers in the Le Cordon Bleu academies and the approval of the talents in them.
