About the Festival
St. Petersburg Gourmet Days
The historic city of St. Petersburg is set to host the third edition of its annual Gourmet Days festival this June. The project, which set out in 2017 to showcase the city’s celebrated contemporary dining scene has grown each year and now established itself as a culinary highlight in the city’s magical White Nights event (a season where the sun never sets).
Gourmet Days is proud to announce also that The Singleton, a prized single malt whisky from Scotland and Acqua Panna and S. Pellegrino mineral waters from Italy, are sponsoring the festival as one of their global gastronomic events for 2019.
This year the festival enters a new chapter, with even more varied dining options for both citizens and visitors alike. The 2019 agenda includes special set menus at some of the city’s finest restaurants; the ever popular, visiting chef collaboration dinners; an intense two days of industry related talks; plus, the exciting launch of the New Names Party, unveiling the city’s most promising young chefs.
