Full description
If you have already tasted delicious Ukrainian cuisine, you will definitely like the idea of learning to cook some of the main Ukrainian dishes in an exclusive cooking class. In a friendly, warm atmosphere of a local kitchen, you will get hands-on instruction on how to make Ukrainian borsch and varenyky, and will of course get to try the result of your work afterwards!

The local hostess will teach you the recipe of the traditional Ukrainian soup: borsch. Adored by locals, this soup includes potato, carrot, beetroot, and cabbage. Its key ingredient, beetroot, gives the soup its traditional red color.

Another must-try Ukrainian dish is varenyky. You will start from making the dough and then practice your skills in shaping varenyky. The stuffing for this mouthwatering dish can be very different, depending of the region, the season and your own taste. Traditionally varenyky are made with potato, cabbage, boiled meat, mushrooms or cottage cheese. In the summertime, you can also make them with cherries, blueberries or strawberries.

In the end of the cooking class, you will enjoy a wonderful dinner and taste your own culinary masterpieces, together with the main Ukrainian appetizer: a sandwich with salo. Don’t miss your chance to learn to cook tasty Ukrainian dishes and surprise your relatives and friends with exceptional culinary skills in Ukrainian cuisine!
