Learn how to cook Russian food fit for a tsar on a private 2-hour cooking class in St Petersburg. Simply book the class for a time that suits you and discover the secrets behind classic Russian creations like ‘bliny,’ ‘borsch’ and beef stroganoff. Hear about the country’s rich culinary history from a professional local chef and savor the dishes with some a glass of cranberry 'mors' – just as the Russians do!


Arrange your private cooking class for a time that suits your schedule, and then start your experience with a pickup from your central St Petersburg hotel. Travel to a local restaurant, put on your apron, roll up your sleeves, and then learn how to cook Russian-style.

Under the expert eye of your host – a professional chef – help to cook and prepare classic dishes as you learn all about the culinary secrets of Russia. Like the country itself, Russia’s cuisine is steeped in history; the heavy meals of Soviet years are being reinvented, and fresher flavors are revitalizing some of the country’s signature dishes.

While the meals vary depending on availability of ingredients, dishes that you may cook include dumplings, borsch (beetroot soup), bliny (crêpe-style pancakes), Russian salad and beef stroganoff. Help chop beetroots, mix flour for pancakes and braise meat as you chat with your host about Russian food.

At the end of your session, sit down to eat and drink Russian mors – a traditional drink made from cranberry juice and fruit compote. Receive recipes of your favorite creations to take home with you, and then finish your cooking class with a hotel drop-off.
