MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s capital will host for the first time ever the world’s greatest restaurant festival Taste on November 22 through 24, the organizers told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Taste Festivals CEO Justin Clarke said the festival would be a landmark event in Moscow’s cultural life and a genuine masterpiece of gastronomy.
The festival is expected to embrace the most popular restaurants of the Russian capital and welcome chefs of London’s best eating houses. The organizers said while picking up the restaurants they focused on the quality of meals served there as well as on the atmosphere and on the personnel’s work rather than on fashion trends.
The festival aims to help promote the art of good eating and teach people to eat healthier foods, the organizers said.
Within the framework of the festival, Moscow public will be treated to presentations of new culinary delights, master classes and cooking shows in the participating restaurants. Renowned chefs will be staying on the floor assisting the visitors who will be invited to cook their own meals.
Traditionally, the Taste festival attracts 30,000 to 50,000 visitors and the organizers expect up to 10,000 guests in Moscow.
The first Taste festival was staged in London in 2003 and it has traveled across 18 cities since then, including Amsterdam, Dubai, Dublin, Paris, Rome and Sydney.
