Qazaq Gourmet

Astana, Kazakhstan

Serving refined interpretations of traditional Kazakh cuisine amid a magnificent scarlet and orange-hued dining room replete with domed ceiling, chandeliers and a scattering of historic national costumes and artefacts, Qazaq Gourmet is a feast for the senses. Having made it his mission to preserve the integrity of Kazakhstan’s gastronomic heritage, chef Artem Kantsev has travelled across the country, studying regional varieties and the seasonality of local produce. Co-author of the book “Gourmet Cuisine of Astana”, Kantsev is known for producing creative dishes – delicate mutton and pumpkin dumplings, lamb with smoked aubergine, dates and Narsharab sauce and a plethora of horsemeat and veal specialities – that challenge diners to see Kazakhstan’s rich culinary legacy in a new light. End with a selection of Kazakh cheeses, fruits or sorbets and a digestif from the drinks menu, which covers everything from green tea to grappa via champagne and cocktails.
