  • Imagine this: you and your girlfriend are preparing a Russian-style dinner using simple ingredients available at home. You collaborate and support each other in the kitchen, creating a deeper bond and understanding. There's the comforting aroma of borsch that fills the air while you're baking blinis. The atmosphere is filled with giggles, laughs, and constant teasing as you attempt to perfect the recipes. Later, you both sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Your homemade dinner, glowing candles, and soft music in the background create a heightened sense of intimacy and romance.
  • After dinner, you can watch a movie or chat for hours while sipping on Kompot or Russian tea. This romantic dinner at home not only allows you to enjoy each other's company but also gives you the opportunity to deepen your connection. It revolves around cooking, eating, and spending quality time together, a far more meaningful date in comparison to simply eating at a restaurant. It's a heartwarming scenario that'll remain in your memories forever.
  • The day concludes with both of you already thinking about the recipes for your next at-home date. You go to bed feeling happy and accomplished – it's yet another memorable day filled with laughter, love, and great food.

Preparation steps:

  • First, decide on the menu. Traditional Russian dishes like Borsch, Blinis or Pelmeni are easy to make and require simple ingredients. You can even try making the famous Russian dessert, Medovik, if you both have a sweet tooth. Once you've decided on the menu, write down the ingredients you'll need and check what's already available at home to avoid buying the same thing.
  • Next, tidy up the kitchen and ensure you have all the cooking utensils required for your cooking adventure. Make sure there's enough space in the kitchen for both of you to cook comfortably. Create a warm and cosy ambience by playing soft music in the background, lighting some scented candles, or putting up fairy lights.
  • Lastly, set up the dining area. A tablecloth, some flowers, or a centrepiece can beautify any dining setting. Don't forget to have some romantic music ready. Remember, the goal is to create a restaurant-like experience at home.

Some tips:

  • While cooking, make the process fun by having friendly competitions, for example, who finishes chopping the onions first. Keep the atmosphere light and stress-free. Ensure that both of you share the workload equally and appreciate each other's efforts. Compliment her cooking skills and make her feel special/happy.
  • Enjoy the process, this is not a Cooking Showβ€”it's okay if you make mistakes, the important thing is the love and effort you’ve put into this dinner. Eat slowly, savour your creations, and enjoy every bite. Share your thoughts about the food, joke, laugh, and make the dinner interactive.
  • Take lots of pictures to remember this special date. However, don't get too engrossed in clicking photographs that you forget to enjoy the moment. The focus should always be on enjoying the time together, not clicking 'Instagram-worthy' shots. Always remember, the key to a successful date lies in showing genuine interest and care for the other person.
