Ivan and Sergei Berezutzkiy, the twin brothers recognized by catering connoisseurs and gourmets alike as Russia’s most talented young chefs, have indulged Aeroflot passengers with delicious and healthy dishes including cream soup of green peas with scallops; octopus with potato, zucchini and cherry tomatoes (served with Masala sauce); Taco vegetables with soy sauce; baked halibut with black rice; Wakame seaweed with fennel and orange (served with creamy sauce of seaweed); and leg of lamb with polenta and vegetables with fennel (served with meat sauce with porcini).
