Fantastic local experience
We absolutely loved the authentic Ukrainian experience with Snezhana and her mum, Irena. We made local Authentic Borscht & Varenyky. We were picked up and dropped back to our accomodation by Snezhana. They were the most friendly and hospitable people and made us feel very welcome in their home. Irena made making Varenyky look very easy, however my husband and I were exceedingly mediorce, but we didn't mind, it was a fantastic learning experience. We made 3 different types of Varenyky- potato, sweetened cottage cheese and cherry. After we made our lunch time offering, the 4 of us sat & ate and chatted about the similarities and differences of our homelands. If you are looking for an activity that is a little different to the norm, this activity is well worth the time and money. It was my husband's bday on the day we did this activity and I had mentioned this in an email once, they remembered and had a little birthday cake- this was over and above anything I expected and was a very thoughtful touch. Snezhana even sent us recipe for what we made! This was probably the highlight of my Ukrainian visit- meeting locals who welcomed you into their home and sharing a meal together.
