Tokyo welcomed a very special event with acclaimed chef Vladimir Mukhin from Moscow’s White Rabbit restaurant (recently named World No. 23) prepared his contemporary take on Russian dishes in Tokyo, for the first time with all-Japanese ingredients sourced at Tsukiji Market.

The 8 course menu included a starter of corn milk, salted napoleon and caviar, followed by dishes including sea urchin, sea buckthorn, seawater; Wild scallop, green tomatoes and raspberry; to gooseberries with prosecco. A key favourite was the dessert; the “Erifeych” with burnt hazelnuts. Paired wines included Nica Pinot Grigio, Chateau de Lussac Le Blanc and a 2013 Pinor Noir “Mission Ranch Vineyard”.

The visit came as part of a cultural exchange between both countries, for the event ‘Far From Moscowintroducing Russian modern culture to the world. Established by musician Ilya Lagutenko of Russian rock band Mumiy Troll, the festival includes an insight into chefs, artists and musicians currently influencing Russian contemporary culture.

Champ photographer Satomi Yamauchi captured chef Vladimir in action, along with his spectacular dishes prepared for guests at the Roppongi Hills Club on November 14.
