Your host Alexander and his wife offer a cooking demo in their open-style, modern and tidy kitchen. Alexander is very proud of his roots and feels happy and honored to share his culture and traditions with people. If the season is right, he will show you how to make a dish that he prepares by wrapping a whole fish in dough and baking it with onions and dill. You will learn about the Komi people and their history in Russia as you watch him cook this specialty dish. 

After the cooking demonstration, you will sit together and enjoy the meal your host has prepared for you. Alexander is full of interesting information about the history of the neighborhood and their country - he and his wife are wonderful conversationalists! Alexander likes to serve dishes native to the people of the Northeast of European Russia and a variety of traditional Russian specialties.

Alexander is a web developer and former artist turned foodie! He moved out of his parents' house at an early age and initially learned to cook out of necessity and by experimentation. However, over the years he fell in love with food and different kinds of cooking techniques. Nowadays his cooking is influenced by traveling to different countries, as he is always curious about what people of other cultures cook and eat.

Meeting new people and sharing experiences has always been a joy for Alexander and his family and he is very excited to meet travelers and teach them about his culture and cuisine.

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience authentic Russian cuisine and learn about the country's history and traditions from a local!
