The Days of French cuisine in Avalon. Only from 12-17 October, one of the three best chefs in the world on foie gras, Jean-Pierre Jacob (Courchevel, France) prepares exclusively for you!

Entertaining complex "Avalon" and the trademark "Shustov" under "The Days of French cuisine in Avalon" represent Jean-Pierre Jacob - one of the three best chefs in the world specializing in the preparation of classic French cuisine - foie gras.

Back in March, Ukrainian gourmets discovered "Avalon" as a center of gastronomic life, appreciating the creation of the first welcomed chef from France Christophe Ruhr, the owner of two-star restaurant in the heart of Lyon. After his arrival in the menu of entertainment complex "Avalon" have appeared dishes from the Ruhr, which were awarded the highest scores from Ukrainian gourmets. For example, Marseille fish soup or fresh scallops with black truffles "a la neige" you can also try in exact performance of Taras Shevchenko (creative chef of "Avalon").

From 12-17 October, in continuation of the project restaurant regulars and visitors have an opportunity to taste the real foie gras cooked by French two-star Michelin chef Jean-Pierre Jacob. New energy, more experience and no secrets!

Jean-Pierre Jacob hails from the French city Aix les Bains. By his own admission the love of cooking art is transferred to his family from generation to generation. Jacob studied in Chambery under Same Berger. He began his career in 1971. From 1980 he worked with his father in the restaurant "Bateau Ivre" in Courchevel. Eight years later became the chef of the same name institution in Bourget-du-Lac. In 2005 he was invited to create and lead the Moscow "Bateau Ivre" in Zhukovka. Today Jacob is the owner of two restaurants in France, which have two stars of Michelin.

Jacob believes that there is so much fun in the world that 100 lives will be not enough but half of those lives he is willing to spend to taste foie gras. So you can safely inflame your appetites. Welcoming atmosphere, a special menu from the famous chef, an unusually beautiful serving of dishes--all will be particularly relevant if you mark a holiday or planning a romantic dinner.

Budmo, hey! (Let's be!) The first thing which comes to my mind... No, that's not what I should say. The first picture which my imagination paints when I hear the words "the Ukrainian cuisine" is an episode from the movie of Hohol's "Evenings in the hamlet near Dykanka", where varenyky, having rolled around by themselves in sour cream, jump into Patsiuk(The Rat)'s mouth. What a great moment! What a great delicacy! And what a great way to eat it! It is certainly a pity that nobody has yet invented a "remote control for the mouth and the plate", and the above method of delivering food into the mouth is just the devil's trick or Hohol's project that is impossible to implement. But then, the amount of halushky (by the way, in a big, big bowl) is just right for our healthy and inspired Ukrainian appetite! Never mind how other people eat, but we, not so rich people, or one can even say people very far from being rich, are used to eating in grand style. It is not without reason that our phrase, "Love comes and goes, but you will always want to eat!", simply does not translate well into other languages - probably foreigners simply just do not have such words. So, what am I talking about? Oh yeah, about the unmatched Ukrainian cuisine! "There's no fish better than tench, and no meat better than pork." Among all the dishes of Ukrainian cuisine, for example, that of the very beginning of the XX century, one can single out several subcategories, which were the most popular among native Ukrainian people: those made from grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits. Note than in the old days, dishes made from meat were considered food for festive days only, and among all the existing kinds of meat, the undisputable preference was given to pork and certainly (could there be any doubting it?) salo - oh, our Ukrainian salo!
