President Putin took part in the APEC summit. Despite difficult negotiations, government officials had time for informal relations. Thus, Australian Prime Minister John Howard gave a lunch in honour of President Putin, where he treated his guests to medallions of beef and lemon cake.

Russian Cuisine “Too Unusual” For APEC Russia 2012 Guests


The food service for the delegates of the APEC Russia 2012 summit, to take place on an island off Vladivostok early next month, will largely use Western European cuisine. Of authentically-Russian dishes, only a mere handful will be on offer. The problem is that Russian cuisine’s too unusual and too caloric for most of our APEC guests. The menu takes account of the fact that the delegates include many practising Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. It also includes much seafood, so highly-prized across Asia and so easily-available in the Russian Far East. Of drinks, a range of wines and liquors will be available. The liquors will include the best of the best of our vodkas.
