Lviv has a rich cultural history as the capital of Galicia. All cultures that came to Lviv brought their own food and therefore we will go and experience all kinds of different foods here in the city! You will learn a lot about all kinds of traditional Galician foods, local drinks and how those products are raised and produced. We take you to the best places for each of them and if if there is a chance you might even get your hands on the food and get to see how to make them! And of course you will get to try each of the dishes.
Borsch is probably the most famous Ukrainian dish of all. And the rule says, that you will find the best Borsch at a mothers or grandmothers house. Well, we won’t make it to that house, but we will show you the best place for Borsch that is not from your mother or grandmother! Get to see how to enjoy the best soup made out of beets and what you should look out for, when searching for the best Borsch.
Apart from Borsch, Vareniki are the essential Ukrainian food. Which filling is the most common, you might ask! But well, we keep some things for the tour and let you even find your personal favorite. And on top of that we show you how to make them by yourself! And what if you have leftovers? Ukrainians got a suggestion to turn them into another delicious meal.
And to cook real Ukrainian dishes, of course you will need to know where and what ingredients you need to look for. And of course the local markets of Lviv are a great possibility to let you try some delicious specialities to try from Ukrainian farmers and other producers. We will show you some delicious cheese and try some honey and milk products and great sausages.
In a country that has a winter with temperatures sometimes below -20 degress Celsius, of course not everything grows all year. That’s why Ukrainian farmers and cooks will know how to make the best out of every season and using special ingredients and foods in certain times of the year. We will teach you all about it and give you the knowledge that we have asked all of our cooks, mothers, grandmothers and aunts, so you can live more healthy throughout the year.
If you still can’t get enough of this, we will show you the best places to have a great local liquor. Anything from a good horilka (Ukrainian vodka) with honey or horse radish to plum brandies, great Crimean wines, Transcarpathian wines and locally brewed Lviv beers.
