Meet Alexei Zimin
Meet Alexei Zimin, our award winning executive chef. Born in Russia, Alexei began cooking from a very young age and quickly turned his passion for food into his very own philosophy. Being GQ Russia editor in chief was simply not enough as he took on his food adventure.
After mastering his precision at the Cordon Bleu London, he went on to open Moscow’s first chef’s table restaurant named Ragout and founded well acclaimed food magazine Eda. He has also opened a gastronomic fast food chain all over Moscow.
Having travelled and foraged the world for delicious combinations of flavours, it makes it hard to identify his cooking as one style or cuisine. Alexei uses food to explore cultural roots in an innovative and exciting way.
