For the first time in the history of Worldchefs a Congress will take place in Russia. The other two candidates for this congress were Lyon, France and Sydney, Australia.
There is no better (and pleasant) way to learn the Russian culture and history than to learn about its food. Like the history itself, Russian culinary traditions are nothing but a blend of cultures and tastes of people who has been forming it throughout centuries. The congress delegates will have a unique opportunity to plunge into the taste and flavor of sumptuous dishes, find new emotions, and get inspired by them to create more special recipes while enjoying fascinating views of the city of Saint Petersburg, which is a legendary world-renowned place itself.
Founded in 1703, the city has a rich history. For about two centuries, Saint Petersburg has been a capital of the Russian Empire. Throughout this period, its picturesque architecture, created by the most talented architects, made the city an open-air museum. Saint Petersburg is a big industrial, scientific and cultural centre with more than 4000 significant historical and cultural landmarks, which are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Congratulations to the Russian National Association for the hard work and see you soon!
