Kokoko Restaurant: seasonality and creativity by the Chef Igor Grishechkin


Kokoko Restaurant is a new concept of ​​Russian cuisine: from the very beginning, from the opening in 2012 to the present day, they have always been faithful to the main principle – to work with farm and seasonal products, to cook from what is collected, caught and produced in Russia at a particular time of the year.

This contemporary restaurant’s menu is based on local farm products. The main concept is «seasonal»: in the harsh winter season, root crops, cereals and harvests are used, and summer and autumn are rich in fresh herbs, vegetables and berries, which are rapidly replacing each other – this is how up to 20 menu updates occur in this luxury restaurant in a year.
