Sergey Minaev opened a new gastronomic show “The History of Food”. His co-host was “Rules of Life” editor-in-chief Trifon Bebutov. Viewers will be able to learn everything about the history of gastronomy: from 19th century Tsarist Russia to the glamorous 2000s. You can watch the show exclusively on Zen.
In his project, Minaev talks about the obvious connections between the culture of different eras and cuisine. In each issue, the author, together with a guest expert, chefs and interviewers, dispels the myths that exist around gastronomic traditions: Tsarist Russia, the times of the USSR, the times of perestroika and the 2000s.
The first episode of the show is dedicated to 19th century cuisine, which created the tradition of serving appetizers and starting the meal with soup. Additionally, several popular national dishes were created around this time that are almost impossible to find today. The invited experts for the topic were the head of the Federation of Restaurateurs and Hoteliers, Igor Bukharov, as well as the chef of the Yar restaurant, Boris Pankrashin.
“Modern audiences often don’t think about their eating habits and what really influences them. At the same time, food is the most important part of culture; It affects not only health, but also the mental component of society. As part of this show, the older generation, in the form of experts and speakers, will become a guide to history and meaning for the younger generation. “The History of Food” is a program about the search for the DNA of Russian cuisine,” said Sergei Minaev.
Food History is published every two weeks. The series consists of four feature films about the role of gastronomy in Russian culture.
Recall that Trifon Bebutov became the chief editor of “Rules of Life” this summer. On March 10, the American conglomerate Hearst revoked Independent Media’s licenses to publish the Russian version of Esquire and other magazines. They continued to appear in Russia under new names.
