DescriptionBegin your tour by discovering the little-known Danilovsky district of Moscow. See one of the most prominent examples of Constructivist architecture in the city, a structure which polarizes Muscovite opinion, the Ship House. Having learned a little about the lives of locals here as you walk you'll arrive at the tastiest part of the tour, the food market. Mingle with trendy chefs and savvy locals alike as you try sour, spicy, cheesy and sweet treats. Begin with nature’s bounty: Sweet Russian honey served with herbs and berries. Then try the freshest cheeses and curd from the Caucasus. If its winter you'll try juicy tangerines from Abkhazia or in summer delicious apples from the gardens around the city. Next enjoy two truly Russian delicacies. First is smoked lard which, though it sounds a bit odd to the western palate, is rich, fulfilling and delicious. Then indulge in red caviar from the island of Sakhalin, an absolute must-eat while in Moscow. Then time travel to the Soviet era to take a peep at a typical kitchenette with stripped tablecloth, cut glass and toffees for children, plus plenty of jars of pickles and homemade jams. You can then taste the secret cure to every Russian’s hangover, salty cucumbers and sauerkraut. After these salty delicacies, banish your thirst with a Kvas or fruit-drink. Head south to explore dishes from Uzbekistan and Dagestan, pilaf and chudu (scones) with cheese or pumpkin, finishing off with tea and pies. Happy and full you’ll be guided to the metro station or you can of course stay and shop for tasty souvenirs.
