On the occasion of the concert broadcast today, Patricia stated for БНР that “the people focus on perfection and glaze. Everyone wants a perfect cake ready for being served on the stage. I act in a different way. I bring the components and make a cake in front of everyone,” she said, being inspired by her two big passions - violin and cooking.
