About your host, Alexandra & Katarina: "My great great-grandparents were chefs at one of the palaces on Nevsky Prospect and since then we've had a genetic passion for food in our family.

We had a really nice time together in Katarinas appartment in Pusjkin. Katarina served us a delicious traditional meal. She was sharing about her Russian life today. Her English is very good and communication was easy
This was a fantastic evening for anyone new to or even familiar with Russian cuisine. Everything was delicious, and Alexandra and Katarina kept the evening interesting. Thanks again for the evening and being a highlight of my first trip to Russia!
It’s been a superb night spending time with Kartarina and Alexandra. My family and I had a very authentic Russian experience with the hosts. Thank you for celebrating my brother’s birthday and preparing the pie and the little presents, that was very thoughtful:) I very much enjoyed the food too! Everything was unexpectedly well-arranged and I would highly recommend this to any of my friend travelling to SPG.
