Let me help you discover wonderful world of Russian traditional specialities. We will meet at one of the most historical parts of the city and find ourselfs at one of the most elite food markets of 18-19 th century. Now it refers to Cultural heritage site. I will tell you about Russian traditional specialities that could be found at a market. You will know some interesting facts about geography of food and Russia. At the market you will taste farmer products from all over Russia: Farmer tvorog (similar to cottage cheese) and cheese. Delicious pickles: tomatoes, cucumbers, sauercraut, wild leek and garlic – these all were favorite delicacies of Tsars and Tsarinas. Fish and caviar. Fresh and dried season fruits and vegetables that were grown at the warmest region of Russia – Caucasus.

Alexandra & Katarina

Food and travelling are two major passions in our life and we would love to share one of them with the guests of our city. I was born in St Petersburg and know all the secret places to visit. My great great grand parents were chefs at one of the palaces of St. Petersburg so love for food is genetical. Alexandra was born in Siberian Altai Region and she knows everithing about traditions that were tought by her grandmother and mother (she brought all of them here with her more then 11 y ago). We've created this experience for those who would like to taste the real taste of Russia.
