The 2015 edition of the Saisons de la Gastronomie Russe is part of the operation “2015 Year of Russia in Monaco”, initiated by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The Saisons de la Gastronomie Russe (Seasons of Russian Gastronomy) will be celebrated in two seasons: the Winter Season from February 19 to 22 and the Summer Season from June 12 to 19, with an agenda of cultural sharing, and a “four hands” cuisine in the largest Monegasque restaurants.
The culinary friendship between France and Russia was born since Catherine II. The chefs of czars’ court of the, mostly French, were inspired by the traditional Russian cuisine to create the most delicate dishes. The mix between the Russian gastronomic heritage and the famous “French touch” gave birth to many recipes.
The Saisons de la Gastronomie Russe will offer a “four hands” cuisine in the greatest Monegasque restaurants with major French and Russian starred chefs.
Four-hand culinary partitions
For the fifth consecutive year, the Saisons de la Gastronomie Russe that, in previous editions, has already brought together great French and Russian starred chefs in Paris, Cannes and Moscow, will be the opportunity to discover, for four days, unique menus created for the Festival.
This “four hands” culinary partition will boost the talents but also the complicity between the invited Russian chefs – representative of their country’s culinary richness – and their hosts, already recognized virtuosos of the Monaco’s restaurant scene.
