On 7 February, Miles Watson and Sebastian Wussler, co-founders of the much talked over Pure-Berlin were invited by the Resto Group (Founder Dasha Galkina), to carry out the catering for the 2013 RRA Awards in the Ritz, Carlton Moscow.

Over the course of the evening Watson, Wussler and sous chef Tobias Wussler, known for their modern reinterpretions of forgotten German dishes and delighting diners with unique taste experiences, prepared a seven course amouse bouche menu for 400 guests, sending out over 6,500 portions.

While enjoying the hotel's exceptional setting, which sits overlooking the Kremlin, guests were treated to a Birne Helene Cocktail made with violet infused pear Schnapps from the Wussler family’s Black Forest distillery and blood sausage maultasche from their butchery.

Among those who received a laurete at the Awards was White Rabbit restaurant, where Watson and Wussler were invited to dine the night before the event, with special nominations going to Beam for ‘Excellent Bar,’ awarded by Sobranie tobacco house and La Maree for ‘Best Restaurant’ as judged by American Express cardholders and Russian Standard Bank.
