Join our exclusive Culinary Tour, with our Tour Guide come Master Chef – Taras Sabadash!

Taras developed a passion for cooking at a very young age. He remembers learning from his family and taking turns trying different recipes and trading secrets. Some of his best recipes and culinary secrets he learned from his grandmother.

After many years of guiding travellers around Ukraine, Taras became an expert in the unique culinary traditions of the various sub regions of Ukraine. Combining that knowledge with his childhood passion and his grandmother's recipes, Taras finally decided to write his first cook book “Ukrainian Cooking in Taras' Kitchen”, and now he will be leading this exclusive Culinary Tour of Ukraine!

He will take you to all of his favourite haunts, while you take part in unique workshops across the country to discover the delights of Ukrainian cuisine, and learn to make them yourselves!

PLUS all participants of this tour will receive a FREE Signed Copy of Taras’ Cookbook! Check it out here.
