Description

The tour begins in the little-known Danilovsky district of Moscow, which is home to one of the most prominent examples of constructivist architecture in the city.

Our degustation menu for the day will include sour, spicy, cheesy and sweet treats for your delectation. I hope you’re hungry!

We’ll start with nature’s bounty: Russian honey served with herbs and berries. Next it’s on to appetisers and you’ll try the freshest cheeses and curd from the Caucasian region.

You’ll then try juicy tangerines from Abkhazia if it's winter or delicious apples in summer from the gardens around the city.

Then it’s on to two proper Russian delicacies. First is smoked lard, which sounds a bit odd to the western palate, but trust us, it’s rich, fulfilling and delicious! Then, red caviar from the island of Sakhalin, an absolute must-eat while in Moscow.
You can then taste the secret cure to every Russian’s hangover, salty cucumbers and sauerkraut. After these salty delicacies, a Kvas or fruit-drink will banish your thirst.

Happy and full, you’ll be guided to the metro station or you can of course stay and shop for tasty souvenirs too!
