The Fourth Moscow Food Festival

This fall, the nation’s capital was the setting for the Fourth Moscow Food Festival: A Taste of the Moscow Autumn. The biannual event brings together chefs, restaurant industry folk, and other foodies to exchange ideas and take stock of the latest developments in local restaurant culture. This year, over 50 of the city’s restaurants participated in a month-long schedule of activities that included master classes, thematic evenings, and a special program exploring the culinary traditions of Brazil. The festival culminated in a gala final dinner that gave three luminaries of Moscow’s haute cuisine scene the opportunity to present their interpretations of some traditional Russian dishes. Three chefs — Anatoly Komm of Varvary, Adrian Quetglas of Cipollino, and Chris Southwick of the Ritz-Carlton (pictured below) — set about creating their own versions of such Russian classics as blini with caviar and wild strawberries and salad “Olivier.” For more information on the 2008 festival and plans for next year’s, visit
