Russian feast: of sinful pies and Chekhov's cherries
Sat 2 October, 18.30. £54 pp.
For one night and one night only, immerse yourself into the world of Russian gentry, gluttonous characters and Slavic lavish feasting (at times a little boisterous!).
We are inviting you to enjoy a 5-course meal inspired by Russian wild countryside and Anton Chekhov’s effervescent writing:
“The kulebyaka pie should be appetising, shameless in its nakedness, a temptation to sin” Chekhov wrote in 1887 in 'Siren', a short story and an ode to the exuberance of Russian food.
For one evening be transported to a summer artist's residence in Russia: a wooden chalet like Dacha with a cosy terrace and higgledy-piggledy furniture, hidden in the woods. Right next to a wild garden and an orchard (how Chekhovian!).
Sshhh, you might just find yourself sitting next a Chekhov character. Oh, he’ll sparkle with vodka toasts and philosophise about that famous Russian soul...
Zakuski (meze 'New East' style)
Light and veggie
Pies, glorious pirogi

" Truly the food that feeds the soul.
“I have always loved RR food, but it is during difficult times that one realises how much one is missing the comforting taste of home.
Prepared with love using high quality ingredients. Great taste of home-cooking. I can’t thank them enough "
" Both orders have been brilliant, really good quality food and a great selection to choose from. We will definitely be using you again!"
" Better than most pelmeni I've tried in Russia. Real depth of flavour "
Natural, home-cooked food, with elegance and exceptional provenance.
We want Londoners to discover (or to recall) the wonderful food of our homelands.
