A self-taught and passionate chef, it was after taking part in the first edition of the Masterchef show that she began working in a professional kitchen under the guidance of chef Lionel LÉVY (1* Michelin).

After several training courses with talented chefs, and with the support of Yves CAMDEBORDE, she bought a cooking workshop which became Georgiana's workshop and set up a table d'hôtes. She then hosted a series on the Voyages channel entitled "Georgiana chez vous".


Encouraged by the success of her cooking, Georgiana opened her first restaurant "Chez Georgiana". In barely 6 months, she was awarded 2 Toques by the Gault&Millau and a score of 13/20, as well as the "Jeunes Talents Gault&Millau" prize. It was also at Chez Georgiana that she hosted Anthony BOURDAIN and Eric RIPPERT for the Parts Unknown programme broadcast on CNN.

In 2017, she is in charge of the opening of Florent MANAUDOU's restaurant on the Vieux Port, La Piscine.

From 2019 onwards, Georgiana VIOU will participate in numerous events and culinary residencies in France and abroad.
