How everything began …
Since its foundation, Saint Petersburg has become not only the capital of the Russian Federation once but also a kind of trendsetter in history, culture, architecture and the art of cooking. During the period of construction, Saint Petersburg invited the most famous and most talented European artists of the time. Together with them, the so-called “Venice of the North” began to cook traditional dishes from many different European countries. Chefs from France, Spain, Italy and Germany creatively reworked old recipes of the Russian cuisine. Due to that, many Russian dishes and recipes have a kind of European tradition. The influence of Petersburg’s cuisine later began to spread across the territory of Russia, contributing to the diversity of traditional recipes from various regions of the country. Nowadays we can confidently talk about the special Petersburg style of Russian cuisine imbued with the spirit of history, traditions, culinary innovations and even experiments.
