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!

Not to be missed.

I had an amazing time being taught how to make 2 typical Ukraine dishes in the private home of the lovely lady who had the patience to teach me. I highly recommend this experience and even better you get to sit down and eat what you have made. I can’t wait to try my new cooking skills back home. Thank you for making me feel so welcome.

Kulinarisk og samfundsfaglig oplevelse i en

En fantastisk oplevelse i privat hjem, hvor man kom ind under skindet på guiden og dennes moder. Vi fik fortalt historier om maden, om hvordan livet var både før og efter sovjettiden, og ærlige direkte diskussioner omkring, hvordan maden burde være. Alt i alt en fantastisk oplevelse.

A great experience to cook in the middle of a Ukrainian family. Like mom. The pick up from the accommodation went really well and the return transport too! The home cooked food was delicious and filling.
