More than 20 chefs from around the world will gather in Moscow tomorrow for the Omnivore Food Festival, a five-day extravaganza featuring masterclasses, specially prepared dinners and exclusive menus in some of the capital's best restaurants.
With chefs from Russia, Sweden, Estonia, Belgium and France, the festival will provide opportunity for Muscovites to indulge their tastebuds at a variety of locations around the city. Gastronomes will also be able to attend one of six dinners hosted by leading chefs from both Russia and abroad.
Would-be chefs will have the chance to share their ideas and reflect on current trends at a series of masterclasses hosted by top talent including Moscow's very own Ivan Shishkin, co-owner of Delicatessen, and Andreas Dahlberg of Bastard in Sweden.
The festival is part of the Omnivore World Tour 2013, which started in France in 2005. By last year, it had spread to 12 capitals including New York, Montréal, San Francisco, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Copenhagen, Brussels and Geneva. After Moscow, the festival will head to Paris and then Istanbul. The festival runs until 27 April.
