Who doesn’t love hearty Italian food?

Through November 27, 105 countries around the world will celebrate the cuisine of the mediterranean with everything from cooking shows and masterclasses to film screenings, food shows and public talks. The good news? You can live la dolce vita in Moscow too.

From wine tasting at the DI Telegraph Center to a talk by Italian chef Enrica Rocca about the history of Venetian cuisine, there’s something for all foodies to get stuck into this week. Other highlights include a presentation from Carlo Odescalchi about the culinary tradition of Roman aristocratic families and master confectioner June di Schino preparing extravagant deserts according to 17th century recipes.
