About This Class

Welcome to my first culinary class!

I have chosen one of the most popular dishes of Russian Cuisine to start my series of independent culinary classes - The Olivier Salad.

This salad has a long history and the recipe has changed since its creation by Lucien Olivier for his "Hermitage"restaurant in Moscow. This Franco-Belgian chef has never revealed the secret of his recipe even if there have always been and there are still trials to reproduce or "restore" the original recipe. His family recipe of Provençale Mayonnaise was probably a part of this salad's success.

Today's Olivier Salad (modern version) is still in the Russians' everyday live and it is traditionally served for special occasions such as New Year's Eve.

In this lesson I'll explain you how I make it and give you tips to create your own version of this Russian Cuisine staple dish.

Welcome to my kitchen!

Bonjour from France!

I'm a foreign languages teacher in real life.

DIY and crafts addict, I felt the desire to create Nature inspired crochet jewelry and accessories a few years ago. And it's especially the beauty of the flowers that fascinates me.

I'm developing my own techniques which permit me to obtain what I want in the easiest way.

I'm looking for a creative reuse in everything I see, that's why upcycling is just natural for me.
