Ecaterina Paraschiv, aka Cathy Paraschiv, is like the Balkans: containing multiples, passionate, cosmopolitan and full of surprises. She moved to France at the age of 6, fleeing Ceausescu’s regime with her parents.
She has held on to the tastes associated with her roots; she opened Ibrik Kitchen in December 2018, a Parisian restaurant that gives pride of place to the Balkans.
For her, the pleasures of dining are synonymous with sharing, cultural transmission and conviviality. This is directly reflected in her kitchen, which celebrates the brut side of nature.
