What to expect
  • Meet your chef at the private apartment to begin the cooking class! Try out your cooking skills with a 3-hour cooking class hosted by a professional chef. This authentic and fun experience will take you into Russian food habits. You’ll learn about the ceremonial and cultural significance of food in Russian society as you prepare your dishes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This cooking class will teach you to make two main dishes that are typically Russian - "Borsch" (beetroot soup) and "Beef-Stroganoff" (braised meat with mushrooms), named after the Earl Stroganov - a very prosperous magnate who owned several restaurants in Odessa, which were accessible only for well-to-do gentlemen. This dish was then recreated by French chef Andre Dupont especially for Stroganov's restaurant at the end of 19th century. Now it's considered to belong to "Real Russian cuisine". When the preparation is over, you will have time to relax with your friends. Once everything is cooked, you will sit around the kitchen table and enjoy the meal you prepared.
