Festival, organized by «Around the World» publishing house is dedicated to gastronomy and culture of different countries. It is the most significant among all new wave of gastronomic festivals. The territory of the festival is divided into six zones, continents, each of which will cook the appropriate dishes.
World Food Festival presents mainstream Moscow networks: Menza, Vietcafé (the «Аsia» zone ), Far Rockaway Bar and Dippin Dots ice cream (in «America» Zone), renowned Double B («Africa») and Soviet Diner (in «Europe»). However, there are curious scarcities: the Colombian Food Academy «Cocine» will present South America with ahiko soup and empanadas. Cafe Altargana will feed visitors with Buryat chebureks ‘hushuur’; and Turkish cafe Bardak will participate not for the first time in the World Food and Travel Festival – they always have tasty food and amazing gozlemes.
This year, in addition to extensive culinary program, eight musical teams will play neo-folk, rock and roll, Balkan music, salsa, Irish songs and Mordovia motives. In addition, there will be a barbecue area, where you can taste kebabs and fowls on skewers. You will be able to participate in many master classes in vegetarian, Thai, Russian and Brazilian cuisines.
The festival takes place in the Hermitage Garden on June 28 and 29. Tickets cost from 400 rubles (€8).
