What you'll do

Let's meet in Pokrovsky park then go to my home, where I will lead an evening for you with Russian hospitality. First of all in the kitchen we will cook meat for our future dumplings, then the dough. And we’ll make fun dumplings together. While the dumplings are boiling we will start dinner with the first course - traditional Russian borsch with a bit of bacon and black bread. On the second course - our handmade dumplings. Vodka or beer optionally. Will be very tasty and fun!

Your hosts

Hello! My name is Aleksandr. I was born in Vladivostok and since childhood I loved helping my grandmother with cooking, especially preparing Russian cuisine, it's one of the most delicious in the world! For a long time I practice very well. Today, keeping the traditions, I want to show guests how it can be easily and tasty cooked.
