What you'll do

You will feel a real Russian life through the views and cooking!

Ending with becoming a guest in a hospitable home cooking one of the most important Russian dishes!

Learn more about Valeria

Valeria

I am a Russian girl, who loves traditional cooking from childhood! I cooked my first blini (Russian pancakes), when I was only 10 years old according to my family recipe. From that time I couldn't stop myself and have a great hobby - cooking! I like to share it with my friends from different countries hosting and teaching some recipes! They are so happy to feel a home taste surrounded by locals! I've started to do the same travelling around and realized that it's the best way to understand other culture. I would like, you could feel it too!

What's included

Food
Russian traditional meal (blini/oladushki/sirniki or borzh) P.S. Kindly be noticed that all panckes contain Gluten
Drinks
Tea and Russian Sparkling wine
Transport
Transfer from Mayakovskaya metro station (the center) to my home is included (takes about 35 mins)

Where you'll be

We will go by taxi to my home looking at Soviet Union's style architecture along Neva River. I will tell you about the history of my old neighborhood. Then, we will warm with a hot tea or cool down with a Russian sparkling wine. Further, we'll start to learn one of the traditional dishes you have chosen before: blini (big and thin Russian pancakes)/oladushki (small and thick pancakes)/sirniki (very thick and healthy pancakes from cottage cheese.
