The Gastronomy Seasons International Festival Celebrates Culture and Savoir-Faire

The 9th edition of The Gastronomy Seasons International Festival created by Natalia Marzoeva, ran from October 18-20, 2018, in a beautifully set up Pop-Up restaurant specially created for this occasion on the Hercule harbor of the Monaco Principality.

Gathering chefs from Monaco, Russia, Spain, Thailand and France, under this year’s befitting theme The Cruise of Flavors,  this gastronomy festival reunited top chefs from different parts of the world.

The chefs had an opportunity to talk about their own culture through gastronomy, unveiling to the public the secrets of their culinary techniques and savoir-faire. During three days a variety of delicious dishes were carefully prepared by 13 chefs overall, with different menus for each lunch and dinner respectively, proposed to residents and visitors alike.

Natalia Marzoeva, founder of the festival, affirmed: “This festival is part of the continuity of the gastronomic gatherings existing between Russia and France at the end of the 19thcentury. The Gastronomy Seasons resumed that tradition in 2010 on the occasion of the France-Russia cultural year, extending it to Monaco in 2010 and becoming part of the Monaco-Russian year celebrations in 2015. The objective to represent each country through its gastronomic culture and the different flavors of regions of each country.”

As it has now become an annual tradition, the next editions of the Gastronomy Seasons International Festival will take place both in summer and winter next year, in Monaco, France and Russia.
