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!
