Moscow Museum of Military History, 12+

If you want to understand an era, study its cuisine.

It is there that the worldview of a civilization is vividly expressed.

On the 9th and 10th of September you are welcome to the “Historical Reenactment Festival: field cuisines in the armies of different historical epochs”.

We will show camp cuisines of the past centuries and demonstrate how armies of different times and nations looked like. We will move away from stereotypes of a field cuisine with buckwheat and stew. Guests will see the preparation of dishes, take part in interactive activities and become a part of history themselves with the participation of historical clubs.
