Russia Chapitre
Moscow, October 19, 2019
Memorable evening at The Ritz-Carlton Moscow
" The celebratory Gala Dinner was conceived and delivered by Executive Chef Artyom Skotarenko "

It was, a very memorable and enjoyable Saturday evening put together at The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow by the splendid work of our members.

From Kremlin views to caviar tastings The Ritz-Carlton Moscow celebrates the mystery and decadence of Russia’s most recognisable city. At the hotel guests can experience five-star luxury in every way imaginable on top of which there is the convenience of the establishment’s enviable address near Red Square.

Bailli Délégué Henri Everaars had travelled from Saint Petersburg to act as Inducting Officer. The Induction Ceremony was particularly notable for the Bailliage of Moscow Professional members receiving their respective ribbons.
 
The celebratory Gala Dinner was conceived and delivered by Executive Chef Artyom Skotarenko.
