So many travellers enjoy visiting hidden places exploring the lifestyle and the rhythms of everyday lives of the city through local markets. If you one of these persons – this tour is for you.    

Dear friends! There is always time to meet-up. From now on we start taking orders for organizing your private cooking party. We work out a special menu for you (Russian, Georgian, European, Pan-Asian cuisines), decorate our studio, make a greeting fourchet, invite a sommelier for wine degustation and even make special aprons with our logo as a present - we do everything to celebrate the occation. As another option we just give you a nice place to rent for your own party up to 18 people.

All children enjoy playing with the dough and when under the professional guidance they make a real pizza or a beautiful puff swan their happiness is endless. Same time adults get unforgettable impressions (take your camera), tasty pies and receipts for simple and delicious home baking!

We organise master-classes on baking pies, cakes, “kulebyaka” and “vatrushka” for children from 4 to 12 accompanied by 1-2 adults! The cooking party is for about 10 children: they have fun together and they do not embarrass each other. They wash hands, then our chef puts aprons on each child and they discuss what they are going to cook.
