Hey everyone! I was born and grew up in Saint-Petersburg, the most appealing and heartwarming City in Russia. I've been loving cooking from my childhood. Thanks to my GrandMa she never minded me to get underfoot in the kitchen. When I was 19 I was involved in hospitality sphere and I got in the kitchen again. As I learned much from my gran so I was applying all her tips through the career. Now having sixteen years of experience in hospitality I consider talking to guest as to a friend encourages more than doing ceremonial restaurant service. That's why I decided to go to EatWith. My friend Sergey helps me to choose drinks to pair dishes perfectly . He loves wines and even have a special degree from a London wine school. As I run several restaurants I love traveling, meeting new people, tasting food and exploring new ways of cooking. So let's spend an evening together, enjoy the food and have fun!

What to expect at Kirill's place
Kirill cooked for us a true Russian inspired menu as per our suggestion. We arrived to his house and Kirill welcomed us with a lovely table set up. Fresh berries, home made bread, and relaxing music made the atmosphere so cosy. The food Kirill prepared was just amazing. Very nice flavours and presentations, paired with excellent wine and some shots of different types of vodka. The conversation was excellent and it was almost difficult to leave as we were having such a great time. I recommend this experience to anyone that happen to be in Saint Petersburg and want to get closer to the locals while having a great gastronomic experience.
Kirill was a wonderful host and chef. We, my father and I, had the pleasure of dining at his event in October 2015. The meal was truly extraordinary, each course was wonderful! The conversation was thoughtful as well. I would certainly dine with Kirill again when I am in Saint Petersburg.
