I couldn't be more excited to recommend Iryna and her Cuisine Tour in a Ukranian Village. It was a truly memorable experience and our favorite day from our travels in Ukraine! We were welcomed by a wonderful family and spent the day on their farm where we ate a beautiful traditional meal they prepared farm-to-table. We learned how to cook pieroshkys (and received some hands on experience in the outdoor kitchen learning from our very patient hosts!) We had wonderful conversation with our host family and felt so welcomed into their home - we did not want the day to end!
Iryna also took us to the nearby traditional farmstead home (now museum) of Ukrainian opera singer Ivan Kozlovsky. We went on a personal tour of the museum and grounds given by an excellent village guide who sent us home with CDs of Kozlovsky's music. We felt so wamly wecomed by Iryna and these rural communities only a short travel distance outside Kiev. True Ukrainian experience and one we will never forget!More
