KSTU has presented the Baltic High School of Gastronomy

     Today, on the basis of the Department of Food Products Technology, the Baltic High School of Gastronomy (BHSG) has officially started. This is the second project implemented in Russia. BHSG is a specialized department for which a special modular educational program "Product technology and organization of public catering " has been created. Developed together with caterers, this program focuses on the dual education system. Within this program, the modules of university training alternate with modules of practical training in the restaurants of Kaliningrad in teams of the best chefs.

     Presentation of the Baltic High School of Gastronomy was held in the format of the seminar "Contemporary culinary and gastronomic tourism in Russia". The first item on the program was a round table discussion with the participation of Deputy Chairman of the Kaliningrad region Government I.A. Barinov, President of the National Association of Culinary Specialists of Russia V.B. Belyaev, as well as Kaliningrad caterers under the chairmanship of the ideological mind behind the project Maxim Tkachev. The university complex of KSTU was represented by the rector V.A. Volkogon and the first vice-rector O.G. Ogiy. The participants discussed prospects for training highly qualified personnel for the gastronomic industry of the region. The honorary guest of the event V. B. Belyaev confirmed the timeliness and relevance of this form of training specialists in the regions of Russia. He also expressed his confidence that Kaliningrad, thanks to the BHSG, may well create its own recognizable gastronomic brand.

     The presentation continued in the assembly hall of the university, where students and teachers of the Department of Food Products Technology and representatives of the restaurant business of Kaliningrad gathered. The guests of the event were presented with the Baltic cuisine manifesto, developed by the founders of the Baltic High School of Gastronomy, which declares support for local food producers, compliance with high kitchen standards, environmental friendliness and popularization of the Kaliningrad region. The manifesto was signed by all the participants of the round table, as well as other representatives of the restaurant business in Kaliningrad. While the presentation was going on, right on the stage of the assembly hall, a student of the 18-OP study group Anastasia Gorbacheva, under the guidance of her mentor, was preparing a sea-buckthorn cheesecake. Her group became the first enrolment of the Baltic High School of Gastronomy.

     At the end of the presentation, all guests were invited to a buffet table prepared by the first-year and third-year students of "Product technology and organization of public catering." At the beginning of the semester, all of them were divided into several groups and sent to hone their professional skills in the leading restaurants of Kaliningrad, such as Kavkaz, Borsch & Salo, Tabasco and others. During the buffet, results of their work within the Baltic High School of Gastronomy were assessed by the guests who gave an objectively high assessment of the first professional steps in today's students of KSTU.

     The program was completed by a master class from the President of the National Association of Russian Culinary Specialists V.B. Belyaev. Mr.Belyaev told the students about his work in the "Kremlin" food production facility, and about the way the menu has changed at the receptions of the heads of the USSR and Russia. V. Belyaev in his speech paid great attention to the national cuisine of Russia and noted that today it is one of the promising directions in gastronomy, since gastronomic tourism in the country is gaining momentum. At the end of the meeting, he answered the students' questions and promised to hold a practical master class for them on his next visit. He assured that the Russian National Culinary Association will support the project of the Baltic High School of Gastronomy.
