  • Your date starts when you go grocery shopping together early in the day to choose the best and freshest ingredients for your menu. After that, you both head home to begin the journey of cooking. You wear your comfortable clothes and open a bottle of wine to create a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. You can find authentic Russian recipies online and make them together.
  • While you cook, you pay attention to each other’s roles and cooperate in the kitchen. The teamwork can lead to fun and funny moments, interleaved with sweet ones as you taste the preparations together. Remember, the process is as important as the outcome.
  • Finally, when the dishes are ready, set the table and serve the food. Light a few candles and play some soft, romantic music. Enjoy your home-cooked meal together, talk about the day's experience, and maybe even plan for your next cooking adventure. This can be as cozy or as fancy as you want it to be!
