Alexander is a web developer and former artist turned foodie! He moved out of his parents' house at an early age and initially learned to cook out of necessity and by experimentation. However, over the years he fell in love with food and different kinds of cooking techniques. Nowadays his cooking is influenced by traveling to different countries, as he is always curious about what people of other cultures cook and eat. Alexander and his wife love to feed their friends and family - they arrange home dinners for up to 20 people at least three times a year. Meeting new people and sharing experiences has always been a joy for Alexander and his family and he is excited to meet travelers! Their apartment is well-located in the city center, and is beautifully decorated with souvenirs collected from the various countries they have traveled to. Join Alexander and his wife for a cooking demonstration in their open-style, modern, and tidy kitchen. If the season is right, Alexander will show you how to prepare a dish that he makes by wrapping a whole fish in dough and baking it with onions and dill. Learn about the Komi people and their history in Russia as you watch him cook this specialty dish. Alexander likes to serve dishes native to the people of northeast European Russia, as well as a variety of traditional Russian specialties. Your meal might include dishes such as Ukrainian borscht (beetroot soup), pickled cabbage and cucumbers, fish baked in bread and for dessert, cranberry mousse. Alexander is proud of his roots and feels happy and honored to share his culture and traditions with people. He also offers an optional market tour add-on where you will tour St. Petersburg's oldest market before returning home for your cooking demonstration and meal.
