This cooking class will teach you to make two main dishes that are typically Russian - "Borsch" (beetroot soup) and "Beef-Stroganoff" (braised meat with mushrooms), named after Earl Stroganov - a very prosperous magnate who owned several restaurants in Odessa, which were accessible only for well-to-do gentlemen. This dish was then recreated by French chef Andre Dupont especially for Stroganov's restaurant at the end of 19th century. Now it's considered to belong to "Real Russian cuisine".
