Peace, love & tusovka culinară


A popular Italian saying goes like that: you will need four chefs to prepare a perfect salad - a miser, a philosopher, a spender, and an artist.


A miser chef will dress the salad. You can find all the dressings you need at the FOOD & DRINKS exhibition. Here, a variety of foods and beverages directly from manufacturers could be found - meat, fish, cheese, pastries, delicacies, juices and much more.


The chef-philosopher is in charge with adding salt. The whole point of tusovka culinara is that famous chefs and food bloggers will cook here. BBC chef Alan Coxon will reveal all the secrets of the famous foie gras. The battle of chefs is promising to be a hot one - the masters will improvise, creating dishes of Moldovan and Italian cuisine. Recognized culinary gurus of the country will share professional secrets with future chefs, and food bloggers will prepare  snacks, salads and desserts using their own recipes. Dumitru Boico and Maria Shiverskih will show you how to create culinary  masterpieces at home. The company Bongard will bake a giant pie and is sure to beat the Guinness record!


The spender cook should add the oil. We'll go on a real gastro binge  at the Street Food Festival (the special party menu includes a variety of meat, fish, bread, and vegetable dishes, as well as exotic spices) and at the One Thousand and One Nights bazaar (exotic sweets, hookah and oriental dancing). The gourmets will not miss the Fish Day - gourmet cuisine and fish fast food in one package from Fishmarket. And if we  go to the limit, then,  on May 18, we'll play a wine roulette, masterfully organized by La Nobilta del Gusto. No need to be a sommelier or a professional - if you appreciate good wine, your place is at the gaming table.


The chef-artist is trusted with tossing the salad and add the final touches to the dish. A deliciously prepared dish is the best mediator for warm and friendly communication at the main culinary get-together of the country, held from  May 16 to 19 at Moldexpo.


At our Street Food Fest, you will find a lot of things to enjoy. After all, the gastronomic pleasures will be offered by Intranslina SRL, Papa Grill and Green Group SRL.
