Covering over 2,000 square metres of the Hanoi-Moscow Multifunctional Trade Centre, the festival space was divided into three areas introducing the signature dishes of Vietnam’s northern, central and southern regions; Vietnamese desserts, sweets and cakes; and Vietnamese tea and coffee.
Visitors were given an opportunity to witness the cooking process of a number of dishes, whilst learning about the ingredients and spices used in the dishes, which were captioned in the Russian language.
They showed their excitement at trying their hands at using chopsticks instead of a knife and fork.
Vietnamese traditional conical hat dance, bamboo pole dance, lion dance, Quan Ho (love duet singing), and folk songs were also staged during the festival in order to advertise Vietnamese culture to the Russians.
Teacher Tatiana shared that she visited Vietnam five years ago and she was so impressed by Vietnamese food that when she heard about the festival she decided to visit it as soon as it opened so that she could taste her favourite dishes once again.
