(Fine Dining Lovers) Ivan Berezutskiy is in the second-floor salon ofTwins Garden, the restaurant he leads with his identical twin Sergey in Moscow, which recently won its second Michelin star. “And the next dish is 3D squid,” he announces.
This course – named ‘Science and Nature’ on the Rediscover Russia tasting menu – is what they believe to be the first plant-based soft-bodied mollusc creation fabricated with a 3D-bioprinter in Russia. The squid game has got a lot more serious – showing that 3D food printing (3DFP) is part of our present, not just the future.
The ethos behind this dish perfectly sums up the twins’ vision. While they run a 100-hectare farm in Pereslavl-Zalessky, where they cultivate ingredients such as salad leaves, berries and vegetables to create a seed-to-plate dining experience, the two-floor Moscow establishment also houses a laboratory. Here you’ll find the chefs throwing their spin on food tech, looking to understand and change the processes that occur with ingredients. “We want to delve into the world of food a little deeper than just frying fish in a pan as we’re interested in pushing the boundaries of the food world and looking to the future,” says Ivan.
