Discover Russian Cuisine Festival to Be Held on Sidelines of Russia–Africa Economic Forum

The Discover Russian Cuisine Festival, a tasting event, will be held on 23–24 October in Sochi as part of the Russia—Africa Economic Forum.

The festival will introduce Forum guests and participants to the wide array of gastronomic culture in Russia and its regional specialties.

A team of the best Russian and foreign chefs will show off Russia’s diverse cuisine, combining Russian local products and traditional tastes with modern culinary technologies. Famous chefs will demonstrate their skills on a chef’s table and in master classes.

The programme includes the Black Sea Stories gastronomic set from Andrey Savenkov and Artur Vidinsh, a French-Belgian set from the cooking maestros Michel Lenz and Roland Debuyst, and an exquisite set from the young chef Nikita Prikhodko. The sets will be accompanied by wine from Russian companies that show off the achievements in modern Russian winemaking.

«Over the course of the Forum, Sochi will host more than 3,000 guests from 50 African countries, many of whom will visit our country for the first time. Our job is to not only present them with an extensive business programme, but to also show them traditional Russian hospitality, including our world-famous cuisine and unique recipes. The event will feature tastings of beverages and presentations of unique Russian dishes made from domestic products at Russian enterprises. In addition, we have invited an international team of chefs who will demonstrate their talents using Russian products. I am certain that attending the festival will be a pleasant way for our guests to continue their busy day at the Forum», Russian Export Center CEO Andrey Slepnev said.

The Russia—Africa Summit and Economic Forum will take place on 23–24 October in Sochi at the Sirius Park of Science and Art. The events are being organized by the Roscongress Foundation, and the co-organizers of the Russia—Africa Economic Forum are Russian Export Center and Afreximbank.
