About your host

Since early childhood I remember my grandmother preparing traditional Russian porridge to our family. I started helping her step by step by listening to ancient Russian fairy-tales and holding a spoon in a pot. Growing older I overtook her skill and brought this habit to my own family. And now I invite you to try classic Russian porridge and listen to the stories with me.
