Photos from the Kosteniuk Culinary Event in St. Petersburg

Hello everybody!

It’s a pleasure to share with you some of the best photos taken during the May 20 Culinary event (see the Press Release here), organized by the Norwegian Seafood Export Council in St. Petersburg, Russia. The photos were taken by photographer Alexandra Belensky (Александр Беленький) whom we thank for allowing us to use them in this post. As you can see from the images, everyone had a great time at this event!

It was a great combination food and chess, like we had last year in Moscow. The goal of these chess-culinary classes is to prove that there is a little champion in each child and we just need to help kids to discover this talent. Healthy living habits, sport exercises and of course chess can help a kid to grow into a happier, healthier and smarter person.


Just before the event started I had time to make a quick “tweet” to my Twitter followers (@chessqueen in English and @kosteniuk in Russian), and also make a post on Facebook (fan page “chessqueen” and personal page “kosteniuk”).



It was fun preparing the food with the kids!


And while the dish was in the oven I had time to give a chess simul to the kids!


There were 3 TV crews filming for different news programs, I put a few of those clips on my video page.




The final result was both beautiful and delicious!




A nice group photo of everybody at the end! Lots of gifts were distributed to the kids!
