Taste Festivals is a company known for running a series of food festivals in over 20 cities around the world, from São Paulo to Sydney. It launched in 2004 with Taste of London. Each of the Taste Festivals is designed to showcase the finest restaurants of the city it is held in as well as to give the attendees an opportunity to meet famous chefs. Taste of Moscow was established in 2013 and has been held each June ever since.

Taste of Moscow is considered one of the best food festivals in the capital of Russia. It’s a unique event where foodies get a chance to sample signature dishes from Moscow’s most exciting restaurants. Like all Taste Festivals, it is an open air event. The festvial is held at the Luzniki Stadium located right below the Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory), across the Moskva River.

Each installment of Taste of Moscow features twenty restaurants that treat attendees to sample-sized portions of their signature dishes. In addition, over 60 top restaurant chefs from Russia and abroad conduct live culinary sessions and workshops, cooking exclusive dishes and sharing some of their secrets with the audience. Live demonstrations take place at the Electrolux Taste Theater while workshops and masterclasses are held in the Electrolux Chefs’ Secrets area.

Of course, restaurants and chefs aren’t everything that Taste of Moscow has to offer. The festival’s program includes a wide range of activities, from цine and food pairings and craft beer tastings, to live entertainment and special activities for children.

Some of the festival’s most exiting activities and zones include: Kid’s Zone with interactive activities for children; Wine & Spirits Academy presenting tastings and workshops from the best producers of wines and distilled spirits; LifeStyle Area with open-air activities; and Main Stage with non-stop live entertainment (live music, DJ sets, fashion shows, dance and theater performances).

If you don’t want to leave Taste of Moscow empty handed, check out the festival’s Gourmet Market. It has over 150 exhibitors offering exclusive products and premium services by some of the best gastronomic brands. Here you can find high-quality chocolate, premium tea and coffee, pastries and sweets, cheeses, frozen yogurt, wine and beer, and more.
