GLOBAL CHEF – Experience the Flavors of Russia


The Global Chef Program is bringing authentic international cuisine to campus. One of Sodexo’s talented chefs has traveled thousands of miles and time zones to cook especially for you.
UW-Eau Claire and Blugold Dining will welcome Chef Boris Martynov who will share the flavors of Russia with the campus community. Special Russian-themed meal events will take place Monday, February 10 in Riverview Café for dinner and Tuesday, February 11 in The Dulany Inn for lunch.
Inspired by family leisurely weekend afternoons in the kitchen, Chef Boris Martynov has always been passionate about food.  His culinary career began more than 45 years ago as a teenager growing up in the Moscow countryside. From the very beginning, Boris prided himself on providing guests with an extraordinary experience they would always remember. Starting his career as a chef at Moscow city airline terminal, Boris was passionate about creating good food and inspiring Russians and country guests to expand local palates.
Boris served 2 years in the USSR Armed forces. His next post was at the USSR Social Sciences Academy and the USSR State Logistics Committee. Moving forward, Boris Martynov was appointed Executive Chef of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. It was Boris’s guiding philosophy of sustainability that drew him to Sodexo. For the past 17 years, Boris has supervised and inspired numerous young chefs to reveal their creative talents. Committed to Sodexo Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, Chef Martynov gives his time and expertise to students throughout their externship program at Sodexo to provide them with real industry experience. On numerous occasions Boris advised and assisted with the opening of food restaurants at business centers, food canteens at industrial sites and dining-rooms at remote sites all over the country.
His talent, hard work and in-depth knowledge of national cuisine have brought him success throughout Russia. For four years, Boris used his culinary talents to provide catering for the Moscow Kremlin Cup, a professional tennis tournament. Chef Martynov never stops mastering his skills to achieve excellence in his chosen profession. He believes that, “the world no longer belongs to those who know but to those who learn.” Sodexo is proud to have him as a corporate chef of Sodexo Russia.
