Danilovsky district of Moscow is little-known to tourists, but it has one of the best food markets in the city that is adored by locals. It attracts both trendy chefs and savvy Muscovites. Our degustation menu for the day will include sour, spicy, cheesy and sweet treats for your delectation. If you don't eat certain products/are allergic to smth, let us know and we will provide the best alternatives :) We hope you’re hungry! We begin the degustation with special pickled industry that is extremely popular in Russia as it helps us preserve a big variety of food during severe winters. Continuing with smoked lard and many more delicacies we make sure you understand what Russian cuisine is all about. You will try traditional drinks that have been Russian favourites since the ancient times. An absolute must-try is red caviar from the island of Sakhalin. Also try the freshest cheeses and curd from the Caucasian region (combine it with jam and be amazed!). As our main course we have plov or pelmeni - the all-time favourites of everyone, who grew up in the USSR. And for desert we have our nature’s bounty: Russian honey served with herbs and berries.
Olga & Team
We’re a team of 5 friends who have gathered together to form a local tour-guiding group: Anna, Elena, Maria, Tanya and Olga. In this group Olga is a real expert on food. Not only she loves cooking herself (finished 2 cooking courses and worked in a restaurant), but also loves to try local gourmet foods while travelling. We are proud to introduce you to Russian cuisine that has a lot of tasty specialties that came from different part of our huge country. We have been doing a tour at Danilovsky market for 3 years & we love this place, just like most locals do!
You will have a variety of food to try. Note: it is quite filling! Vegetarian/vegan options available.
Danilovsky market - bustling local market where all Moscow's foodies go. The modern building of the market exists since 1980s, but the market has been here since the beginning of Moscow! The best thing about this gastronomy tour is that it's perfect for any weather - we are indoors :)
