Food and travelling are two major passions in our life and we would love to share one of them with the guests of our city. I was born in St Petersburg and know all the secret places to visit. My great great grand parents were chefs at one of the palaces of St. Petersburg so love for food is genetical. Alexandra was born in Siberian Altai Region and she knows everithing about traditions that were tought by her grandmother and mother (she brought all of them here with her more then 11 y ago). We've created this experience for those who would like to taste the real taste of Russia.
