The first ever Gastronomy Festival will be held in Monaco in just under a week, taking diners on a flavour journey through some of the Principality’s finest restaurants.
Created by famous Russian restaurant journalist Ian Cherepanov, the festival will take place from 7th to 20th October and include a special set menu at five of Monaco’s hottest restaurants: Cantinetta Antinori, Song Qi, Beefbar, Twiga and Cova.
“I love Monaco and I usually spend half of the year here,” Ian Cherepanov told Monaco Life. “My family and I like to go to restaurants and discover something new. The idea of this festival is to allow restaurants to show their concept through a special set menu.”
Each restaurant will be offering a special set of dishes inspired by traditions and world trends, covering everything from Mediterranean to Japanese cuisine, including fish and meat suggestions.
“I really want to make Monaco a gastronomic capital of Europe,” says Ian. “Through this festival I hope people from all over the world will come here not only for the beautiful life and sport events but also for high gastronomy.”
Ian Cherepanov was awarded best food critic in Russia in 2017 by FoodShow Award. He expects the festival to grow in popularity throughout the years and to include more restaurants in future editions.
The Prince’s government has ramped up its current Psychological Support Unit to better respond to the mental and emotional needs of people in the Principality during lockdown.
The Prince's Government has established a dedicated unit responsible for caring for Covid-19 patients who have mild symptoms and are confined to their homes.
The government has added psychologists to the team at Monaco’s Covid-19 call centre as a growing number of people seek advice on how to cope with isolation and fear.
We all know the downsides to confinement, but there is also a silver lining. The environment, as well as the population, are coming out winners with Monaco seeing cleaner air and less noise.
