We spent a fantastic afternoon learning about Ukraine and Ukrainian cuisine with Yulia. Yulia offers a variety of meals and it all... more comes with the authenticity of a Ukrainian home and kitchen, allowing you to escape the city centre and see the tourist-free Lviv! Yulia is a fantastic host and if we'd definitly recomend a cooking class with her if you happen to be in Lviv!
I took Lviv Fortifications in April 2014 and was amazed at Ihor's profound knowledge of the subject and the city's history in general.... more Ihor's services are highly recommended; a tour with him will make you stay in Lviv even more enjoyable and entertaining.
I was in Lviv for the first time and it was so amazing) This city is so beautiful and people are so nice & hospitable.Our guide told us... more such an interestening stories about this city)
I was lucky enough to meet Julia through Sputnik and enjoy a wonderful day shopping for the fresh ingredients we would use in our meal. I... more had always wanted to learn how to make varenyky and Julia even accommodated my desire to make a potato filling. We spent the early evening preparing the dough and filling for our meal, made a lovely fresh salad and had some wine. What a great experience,shopping in a local market, preparing and cooking in her home and Julia is a warm, friendly person with will make your visit memorable. I cannot say enough about my experience and how much I enjoyed being part of a real Ukrainian experience. Please do this class if you are looking for an authentic way to enjoy some of your time in beautiful Kyiv.
Me and my friends went on this tour and we have a great time. Julia was very nice, and patient with us, whilst we helped to cook our meal... more of Chicken Kiev, Borsch and cottage cheese pancakes. It took longer than it says, but that was due to use not flly telling Julia what we wanted to make - so make sure you let her know so she doesn't need to change her plans! The only criticism I would suggest is that if you are already living in Kiev then you probably know and use Billa, which we used for our buying our ingredients. We would've liked to have used a more traditional type of market available - something that a non-Russian speaking person would find difficult to access. The food we made was absolutely delicious - the borscht was sensational, and the chicken kievs were delightful! Thank you Julia for a wonderful afternoon
