Cook traditional Russian dishes, depending on the day and your wishes. For example, Monday is a salad day and you learn how to cook the legendary Olivier salad, on Wednesday we usually cook Borscht, and Friday is dessert day and you learn granny’s secret recipe for a super tasty pie. We are open to your ideas.
And here comes the best part – after you have successfully cooked the dish, you get to to enjoy the meal you have made over a family table together with Olga and her family. Take your chance to speak about Russian culture, traditions, what Russians love and hate about their homeland, what they think about different social issues, and current politics.
We believe that only by interacting with locals, you are able to discover the real Russia and its people. Spend a lovely time with Olga and her family, cook traditional Russian dishes, and learn something about Russia beyond what’s shown on the news.
