Gastro adventure in Kyiv

Tours

Start with a breakfast in a place which is famous for its bread, pastries and sweets. Our aim is to explore local specialties. This breakfast is granola and avocado free! We try only traditional dishes and discover new tastes.


After breakfast we head over to the market. Bustling market atmosphere and mouthwatering displays work together as the best aperitif. We continue to follow our main principle: try local, what you won’t find anywhere else. Meat and fish cold cuts, pickles, rye bread, seasonal vegetables – there is a long list.


It’s time to move to the restaurant for a culinary master class. Guests put on aprons, take a glass of local wine and enjoy. We end the master class with degustation of the group’s joint efforts.

It takes 2 hours to get to the farm. Upon arrival we will meet the founders and enjoy the tasting of young cheeses which are perfect for breakfast: cottage cheese and ricotta with caramel.


To continue the introduction we will go for a walk on the territory of the farm, which has 35 hectares. Will take a look at the goat farm, inspect the Swedish milking equipment, hold the little kids and go on to watch the goats and deer on the pastures. If we are lucky, we will have an opportunity to feed deer with bagels.


After the walk, we will settle down in the orchard under an apple tree with a glass of cool cider and immediately start tasting soft and hard cheeses of different ages, combined with greens, vegetables from the garden, homemade jam, fragrant bread, nuts from a next tree and wine. Will pick up our favourites and go back.

During our visit to the farm we will watch buffaloes, learn about their housing, nature, characteristics and biological features. We will walk in the open air. With respect for the needs of animals, we follow the rules of polite behaviour: we do not make sudden movements and do not raise voice.


Having seen the production, we move to a cozy bistro from the founders of the farm - a secret place of buffalo cheese lovers. It’s not possible to evaluate a product in words, we start tasting cheeses combined with seasonal products and a glass of sparkling wine. The degustation menu was specially developed by your trusted foodmates in collaboration with the chef so that you could get the most complete palette of flavours.


      • Access to a unique production, closed to a wide range of visitors
      • Generous tasting of local cheeses from buffalo milk
