The second edition of IKRA, an annual event designed to promote Russian gastronomy and gastro-tourism, was held in Sochi, Russia from 31 January to 4 February 2018 in partnership with S.Pellegrino, Acqua Panna, and Fine Dining Lovers.
The winter festival gathered top Russian and international chefs, and food experts and offered an occasion for focusing on Russia's gastronomic heritage and traditions, as well as the future.
Masterclasses, dinners and talks shaped four days of cultural exchange for both professionals and foodies, on how Russian cuisine can “become part of the context of world gastronomy.”
Here's a selection of amazing dishes prepared by top international chefs during the IKRA workshops and masterclasses.
