What you'll do

Love Russian food, want to master the famous Piroshki? Join me in the kitchen for a fun adventure as I share my secrets to cooking, that you can easily recreate at home.

It will be a small group, so we will do all the cooking together. The class will be interactive, rather than demonstrative.

- We will start with making the perfect dough for piroshki. I will give you all the tricks and tips on how to achieve a soft and light dough.

- We will be making 2 different fillings, one with meat and one with jam.

- I will show you how to make piroshki by hand and create different shapes of them.

- We will fry and bake the piroshki and enjoy our home made piroshki.

- We will feast on what we cook

- All ingredients will be provided.

- You will also receive a full recipe of what we will make during the class.

Classes can also be booked for groups and special celebrations. If your date is not available please write to make a request.

Please specify dietary requirements and allergies when booking :)

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot take bookings for 1 person, so please check if someone else is coming on that day or message me in advance before booking if you travelling solo, in case I can add you to another class :)
Other things to note
Come in comfy clothes that you don't mind cooking in. Please advise on allergies and we can make piroshki vegetarian also, just request :)

I may live in London, but I’m a Latvian/Russian girl at heart—one who’s passionate about food. I absolutely love Russian piroshki: Soft, fluffy buns with different fillings. Baked or fried, they’re mmm!

Everyone who tries piroshki loves them as much as I do, so I decided to teach people how to make them. The process is so relaxing and calming, and gives insight into my culture. My goal is to share my heritage and tips on how to make piroshki like a pro.

I host multiple cooking experiences, so check them out if you'd like to try other unique and tasty Russian dishes. I also received a 2-year CPR & First Aid certification from the Red Cross (issued Sept. 11, 2019). You can learn more about me and see more of my work on Instagram (@allasyummyfood).

Alla is a great host and the piroshki's were delicious! We did this as a team outing for 7 people and it was a lot of fun. Alla explains everything in a friendly, clear and easy manner.

Alla is a YouTube celebrity chef as well as a very nice person who is an expert in Russian/Latvian food, so you’ll be in good hands if you’re into learning more about Russian delicacies like Piroshki! She’ll make you feel welcome and is good at giving instructions in a simple way for beginners like me. Nice experience and delicious snacks!!
