What you'll do

Welcome foodies into our home! Let us offer you a nice cold Belgian beer (or non-alcoholic alternative) and get you prepared for making your hands dirty. Of course you can also just watch and enjoy a drink - while we explain you all the details of the preparation.

Together, we will make a delicious Ukrainian meal - accompanied by a selection of Belgian beers (no Leffe or Duvel) while sharing some knowledge about our Belgian and Ukrainian culture.

- We start by preparing the first dish on our menu: Borscht - a beetroot soup; signature dish of Ukraine
- While our Borscht is cooking, we will make Varenyky (dumplings without meat) or Pelmeniki (dumplings with meat)
- After our hard work, we move to our dining table where some typical drinks and appetizers will be waiting for you. If weather allows - we will be sitting in our cozy city garden.
- And then… smachnogo (let’s eat!)

After you have enjoyed your meal and it’s time to say good-bye, we will leave you with some recommendations for the rest of your stay in Antwerp or Belgium.

Additional information:
Everything can be prepared suitable for vegetarians on request. (Anna was one for 9 years herself)

Hi, we are Anna and Nicolas. Our greatest passion is… eating! Luckily, we enjoy cooking as well - and we love to host dinners and garden parties for our friends and family. Meeting new people with different backgrounds and cultures gives us energy, and we like sharing our passions and knowledge over a meal with them.

Anna was born in Ukraine and raised in Belgium, and has been attending the best culinary schools for Ukrainian cooking; the kitchens of her mother and grandmothers. Over the past few years, she has been practising her culinary skills; throwing Ukrainian dinners for family, friends and colleagues.

Nicolas, born and raised in a small Belgian town, and has been a worthy sous-chef ever since he met Anna. He is a star on his own when creating Belgian classics, but that is a different airbnb experience we host.

Geweldige ervaring, iedereen is actief bezig en het lekker etentje is de kers op de taart . Een interessante onderdompeling in de Oekraïense cultuur !
