Budding chefs will love this excursion – it’s a four-hour-long cooking class that includes some vodka tasting. You’ll first be introduced to one of Russia’s most popular dishes – pelmeni, or meat dumplings. The filling can be any kind of meat, although venison is very popular. In your masterclass, you’ll learn how to expertly make your own dumplings, as well as discover the history of this dish, and why it’s so popular. While your creations are cooking, you’ll move onto the vodka, trying several brands to find out what’s in each type and how they differ. Then eat your pelmeni, or take it home to show off to family and friends.
