My third night in Moscow I had the luck to have Ivan and Sergey from Twins Garden to create a six hands dinner together with Micha from Maido in Peru. The kitchens are far away from each other, but they both have a very creative and playful way in creating their dishes. Both of them are also working in a way so that you get some really amazing surprises while eating. Both in flavors and textures, and the way they are presenting their dishes is fantastic! I am so grateful and honoured to have taken part of this evening! Thank You for inviting me! Continue reading “Maido and Twins Garden teams up for a one off evening in Moscow”
