We thoroughly enjoyed our Russian cooking classes and would highly recommend them. It was a gift for us to learn how to cook Russian cuisine in our own kitchen. Besides being a passionate and talented cook, Irina is very personable, smart, conscientious and accommodating. She was really hands-on with our young daughter too. She highlights healthy, local ingredients (even from her own garden plot in some cases). We were grateful to learn all about Russian culture and food customs, and have incorporated them into our lives. Our favorite dishes to eat and prepare are the stuffed peppers and blini – yum! The classes were well worth the money and exceeded our expectations. It was a gift for us to learn so much about our daughter’s birth country.

Irina’s cooking adds a healthy twist to traditional Russian comfort foods. After having a dinner she prepared I felt perfectly satisfied and nourished. (Her cakes are delicious, too!)

Since I first tried Irina’s cooking 5 years ago, I’ve delighted in countless Russian feasts, both here and in Seattle. Her salads, soups, and cakes will make you swoon. Thanks to Irina, I can experience what my grandmother’s cooking must have tasted like.

I attempted to make several dishes we learned from Irina’s Russian cooking class one evening for family and friends. Everything turned out great and the compliments kept pouring in for weeks. Irina’s recipes and techniques are so easy to follow and her dishes are delicious and nostalgic!

I highly recommend Irina’s cuisine because you can taste how much care goes into it. After the first course, it will be the home cooking you didn’t realize you were missing.
