I did the market tour and cooking class - it was a good time and interesting to see the communal flat. The food was not the greatest - I definitely had better Russian food in restaurants and while it didn't make me sick the hygiene of the kitchen could have been better when handling meat. Overall it was fun and an interesting way to see how Russian food is made.

Thank you for your review - we are happy that you like the experience! We are constantly working for improvement of our services and will use your comments to get better! The restaurant and home made cuisines are different by concept – we are closer to the latest, focusing on Russian traditions in cooking and demonstration of the process that you could repeat at home. Many guests from our classes said that was the best meal they had while in Russia, but tastes differ. We will definitely work on improvement of cleanness and meat cooking process, thank you for commenting.

We enjoyed visiting the market and sampling different cheeses, caviar, honey, and sauces with Natalia. The Russian sweet Natalie bought for us was also very good. We enjoyed making and eating the borsch, pelmini, and syrniki very much as well. It was even nice driving thru the city and getting a mini-tour from the car too! I would recommend to everyone visiting Moscow.

Nathalie spoke beautiful English and walked us through a complete Russian meal. We made borscht, Pelmeni, and piroshki. We made our own pastry and pasta dough, and it was easy. We will do this again.

I took this class with a friend while visiting Moscow and I'm so glad we did this. The organization went so far out of their way to accommodate special requests that I had, including baking a birthday cake as a surprise for my friend. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were and how much they did to make this a fantastic experience. The food was great too! I would highly recommend Taste of Russia when visiting Moscow.
