I really enjoyed the cooking class! Even though I was not the best with preparing the varenyky, it was incredible to see the process of how both these traditional foods were made. I definitely left on a full stomach!

Truly worthwhile three hour home cooking course, including the transportation and a complete meal. Tasty and healthy Ukrainian home cuisine, certainly to be replicated when I get home. Also was a good experience to visit the residential area!

Wonderful Cooking Class

This was so much fun! Everything was very well organized, Olga picked my up by car near where I was staying and then we went to her mother’s place where we cooked Borsch and Varenyky. Olga and her mother were very kind and welcoming, and the food we cooked was delicious. It was really interesting to learn about the different recipes and ingredients you can use to make these traditional meals. I highly recommend this experience.

Snezhana and her mother provided a wonderful, local experience with a very personal touch. Green Tour is a family owned and operated business, making it a very personal experience. From the beginning, Snezhana was engaging and energetic, making me and my boyfriend feel very much welcomed and excited to visit her house and learn to cook. Her mother forgot the name! did so much more than teach us how to cook. She shared stories, engaged us in conversations about Ukrainian culture and food, and made us feel at home every moment of the three hours. The lesson was clear and we walked away feeling like we could cook Ukrainian food on our own. Overall a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.
