The Royal Academy of Arts,  A Curious Invitation,  Victoria and Albert Museum,  Dash Arts,  Pushkin House,  Michail Khodorkovsky's 'Open Russia' foundation,  Mari Vanna restaurant,  Watts Gallery are some of the contributors I have worked with as part of Russian Revels - a pop-up dining experience company I co-founded with Karina Baldry in 2012.  We also co-hosted events with such award-winning food writers like Olia Hercules ('Mamushka'), Anya von Bremzen ('Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking')' and Alisa Timoshkina's magical pop-up KinoVino

 

We created the first food festival of Eastern-European food in London at South Bank Centre together with the Real Food Festival and in 2014 we were asked to cook a dinner for 250 people at the iconic Oxford food symposium. It's been such a ride...Below are some examples.
