Lectures and workshops will be offered during the event, including classes on how to grow organic healthy food right in your home and how to figure out what’s what in molecular gastronomy. Chef demonstrations will unravel the mysteries of molecular cooking and show off with spectacular food experiments. All visitors should be prepared for the exciting culinary giveaway quest!

Healthy and tasty

The hallmark of the “VKUSNO” ("Tasty") festival is its relevance to real life. All the dishes presented at the event, created by renowned chefs, can easily be reproduced at home with ingredients found at the local supermarket. The dishes — and the chefs behind them — hope to dispel the myth that healthy food isn’t worth eating.

Like similar events, this festival will be rich with workshops, contests and tastings, but unlike many others, it offers visitors the opportunity to meet and get advice from chefs, food bloggers, nutrition specialists, fitness professionals and even food photographers.

The youngest guests will be fully entertained at the Baby Club.

The festival will take place at Moscow’s Central Telegraph Office (Tverskaya st., 7) on Nov. 4-5.

Take a culinary journey around the world

The festival offers dishes from 25 geographic zones that visitor can explore with special guidebooks, itineraries, travel photos, souvenirs and tales from food-loving travelers and food bloggers.

And of course there will be many workshops, lectures, tastings and meetings to attend.

Eat the cuisine of ancient Rus’

3 historic Russian recipes not for the faint of heart

There is one more region to visit the historic town of Velikiy Novgorod (330 miles northwest of Moscow) in November. This gem of ancient Rus will host the fifth annual Gourmet festival on Nov. 12. This event gives visitors the chance to try the cuisine of their ancestors: pike steak, the thick, millet-based warriors of Novgorod, mini cabbage rolls stuffed with rabbit, mushroom and fish soup and many other delicacies. Special authentic dishes of Novgorod will be created just for the event.

And if you get tired of traditional Russian food, the city’s restaurants offer special menus featuring Austrian, Italian and Tunisian cuisine among others.

Don’t miss the chance to vote for the “best dish of Novgorod” — the winner will be the city’s official dish for the entire next year.
