What you'll do

We are teaching to cook traditional Ukrainian food: Borsch, Varenyky (dumplings), Deruny, Syrnyky and other dishes in a cosy atmosphere and comfortable environment during friendly conversation. Also certain preferences to the menu can be adopted in advance.

We will transfer you from the city center or your accommodation on the agreed hour and complimentary traditional Ukrainian snacks and drinks will be available upon your arrival.

During introduction, we will get to know each other and discuss the menu, will pick upon ingredients and will simply relax in friendly conversation.
Vegetarian or gluten free food is also available on prior request.

The class will consist of at least four dishes in three courses and will last for about three hours. I will share with you the local culinary secrets and traditions on a cultural journey both to modern Ukrainian life and history.

And the most pleasant part of evening is of course - tasting. We will gather at a table in order to share the dinner which we have cooked together and discuss the impressions, preferences in a cosy conversation.

After dinner, we will bring you back to a place of your convenience.

I'm loving to travel myself and have personally discovered that tasting and communicating with locals, their customs and traditions is the salt of any journey, which we in Ukraine call – Sil’.
My philosophy is to share with people who travel to Ukraine a little piece of our culture and traditions, which you can bring from my home to yours!
Cooking and interacting with travelers is my passion which I'm happily shearing with my guests!
My class is an opportunity to learn how to cook Ukrainian food, but most of all - it is an entertaining evening trip into depth of local traditions and culture.

Kateryna's "Ukrainian Cooking Class" was such an incredible & unique experience! Kateryna welcomes you into her home as if you are already friends. She puts everyone to ease immediately with her presence & friendliness. She is so welcome and inviting & cares about everyone that comes to her class. I seriously can't say enough positives about her class. I left feeling an appreciation for Ukrainian food, the culture & with a new friend. Everything we prepared (definitely a hands on class) was amazing especially the Borsch! Kateryna even sent me home with extra for the next morning. I highly recommend this class & also would suggest that you try to find an evening where others are also attending as it is such a fun group activity!

Wonderful experience with wonderful food! My boyfriend and I had fun trying our hand at the traditional recipes taught to us by Kateryna. We felt at home in her apartment. She welcomed us with her homemade drinks and delicious Ukrainian appetizers. We recommend this experience to anyone visiting Lviv.

Kateryna: thank you so much for such an amazing evening. We enjoyed your cooking class, your company, and the splendid meals. Thank you for being flexible with the time and extra caring (we enjoyed our left-overs on the train the next morning). We could not have asked for a better host. Your cooking prowess and excellent leadership in the kitchen have left us speechless. We simply had no words as we all dug in to our delicious borscht. Thanks for making this experience hassle free and a must do any time that we are in Lviv.

Well what can I say it was a beautiful evening. The lesson was set in a fantastic location, the host provided great service, and i got to meet with other travelers and we all exchanged stories together, and then cooked some wonderful dishes. I learnt some ukranian history and it felt really homely and friendly.
