June, 21: Two Mexicans in Chicha

Francisco Ruano (No. 36 in Latin American 50 Best Restaurants) and Sofia Cortino

 

       During the World Cup 2018 Chicha welcomes two honorable guests from Latin America: Francisco Ruano and Sophia Cortino. Mr. Ruano, who is the chef of the restaurant Alcalde in Guadalajara, has worked for many well-known restaurants around the world: Mugarits, El Culler de Cana Roca and Noma. Now Francisco Ruano is №36 in the list of the Best Restaurants in Latin America. Sofia Cortino — a chef-confectioner of the luxurious hotel Carlota — studied from the legendary French chef Pierre Herme and also worked with Enrique Olvera, who is a Mexican star chef (Pujol).

The Mexican Secretary of Tourism was proud to choose Francisco Ruano and Sofia Cortino as gastronomic ambassadors of Mexican cuisine. According to compatriots, both chefs not only know how to carefully store traditional tastes and recipes, but also reopen them to the whole world, using modern techniques and current trends. “Honest cuisine” — that's how Francisco Ruano calls his cooking style, which is based on seasonal produce from the nearest market. Francisco Ruano and Sofia Cortino would bring the produce to Moscow to cook their own specialties. Olga Suzdalkina, Chicha’s chef, will complement the menu with recipes in Peruvian style, also taking seasonal local produce as a basis. Eight courses cooked by three chefs — and original wines for each dish — would wait for you on the 21st of June in Chicha.

 FIFA would unite not only fans, but also gourmets!

For example, he uses purple tortillas made of tapioca with ground black corn for tacos with stewed marble ribs in Nikkei sauce. Avocado and chimichurri shrimps tacos taste especially delicious with bright-green tortillas with cheese, spinach and greens. Small golden brown pitas look like both classic corn tortillas and home-made pancakes. Each portion contains a couple of pitas.

It’s exciting to fire them with gas-burner, flavour with lime juice or just roll, but the most exciting is to the filling!

Get a variation on classic taco al carbón with yoghurt-pickled chicken, pineapple and cucumber, all in nut gamadary.

Wine tasting noons

Chicha slightly increases blood alcohol content — training hard in cultural exchange! Wine and strong spirits tastings every Saturday in our small hall.

Themes are given by the unique idea of the restaurant itself.

«Wine corrida at Chicha», a dance of Spanish wines and Creol dishes. Interesting wines, chosen by our sommelier Margarita Koroleva, and
original Creol dishes done by Vasiliy Zaytzev.

Further events are even more interesting. «The Path of the Conquistadors» — tasting that goes with the journey of Spanish vine grapes to the New World; Pacific Vine Alliance brunch; Pisco as an occasion and the first Peruvian wine dinner in Moscow.

Pisco Sour festival

July 23 Peru celebrates Pisco Sour Day. Chicha greets the tradition: for two weeks there will be a festival marathon dedicated to the most popular Peruvian cocktail.

There is only one item on the to-do list — training hard in cultural exchange!

For two weeks of the festival our guests can try half a dozen variations of the classic. Exotic pisco sour with two kinds of pisco at once: cardamon and cinnamon infusions with cocoa liqueur and sweet potato purée. Truly Créole cocktail with spicy pisco, Spanish red orange liqueur and agave syrup. Known for its restorative qualities, Chestnut Pisco Sour is made from cardamon pisco, Buryatia rosebay and chestnut honey. Another variation is the Provençal style pisco with lavender aroma and elderberry liqueur, and there is even an Australian one — macadamia nut infused with tamarind syrup. In case of hot weather there is the Hibiscus Pisco Sour — with almond and summery aperol flavours, hibiscus and fresh basil.

Classic pisco sour consists of Peruvian pisco, lime juice, syrup and a drop of angostura bitters, and topped with whipped egg white — as indispensable for a sour as an olive for a martini.

March 8th Peruvian style

Chicha’s bartenders under the leadership of Vladimir Prokofyev have added a little passion to Women’s Day. Their celebratory “Passionnegroni” consists of sloe gin, Aperol, Campari and water from rose petals. To those who can’t buy roses their girlfriend in time should definitely start the evening with this cocktail!

The chefs of Chicha have also approached the holiday with wit. Their present - marshmallow made from Peruvian berry “mora” - prepared in the form of festively decorated skulls. When looking at that literally “sweet couple”, it’s hard not to remember the founders of International Women’s Day - Rosa Luxemburg and Clara Zetkin.

Taco festival

Tacos is practically a peruvian “pancake”, a stuffed flapjack folded in two. It’s not a coincidence that the festival has been timed with Maslenitsa. The holiday menu features tacos with five stuffings, each more interesting than the other. Tuna together with mango and “sweet orange” sauce or salmon with avocado, orange, tomato and cream-cheese - for those who prefer fish. Anticuchos pork ribs with sweet corn and cheese or anticuchos marble beef with salad leaves and cilantro - for those who prefer meat.

There’s even a vegetarian option with grilled Bulgairan pepper, tomato, sweet corn, red onion, avocado and Peruvian aji barbecue sauce.

"Love is like a drug!"

Valentines with red and pink hearts at Chicha have gone through a Peruvian makeover. Declarations of love will be done with multicoloured chocolate skulls.

Virgilio Martinez visit

The most famous chef in Latin America - in Moscow for the first time!

Virgilio Martinez is a revolutionary and a perfectionist. His restaurant Central in Lima was ranked fourth in the list of the best restaurants in the world, The World's 50 Best, and the first in Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants. In October, the famous Peruvian chef will come to Moscow to prepare a gastronomic dinner in honor of the official opening of the Chicha restaurant.

 

The name Virgilio Martinez is associated with a Peruvian cuisine boom sweeping the world. He opens the restaurants not only in Peru, but also in London, travels up the Andes in search of herbs, berries, roots, and visits gastronomic congresses to talk about the unique products and recipes of his motherland.

 

However, he had not yet gone this far. After the great Peruvian expedition, undertaken at the beginning of the year by the founder of White Rabbit Family Boris Zarkov and Brand Chef Vladimir Mukhin, Vergilio arrives to Russia for a return visit. He comes to taste Russian cuisine, which is as rich as Peruvian with potatoes and fish, to get acquainted with new products and, of course, to cook.
