Did you know that Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg accommodates tennis players who make great pizza? As part of the cultural program of the St. Petersburg Open 2012 tournament, Corinthia hotel hosted a culinary competition with the participation of current doubles champions Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins.
With the deputy chef of the hotel Denis Kondakov assisting them in this demanding but exciting activity, British tennis players tried their hand at making New York style pizzas.
The tennis players treated all their guests with cheese and pumpkin pizza.
We were naturally curious to learn what dishes the tennis players preferred to cook in everyday life. Could it be pizza? Hutchins, for example, spoke of his love for fish, especially salmon with rice.
After the tournament, we will follow with a separate report on the events of St. Petersburg Open 2012. Read us next week!
