The Museum of Russian Dessert in Zvenigorod
January 8, 2016 17:58


What sweets did our great-grandparents eat on holidays? What they were cooked from and how they were served? What are the traditions of tea drinking in Russia? Answers on all questions you can find in one of the historic houses in Zvenigorod near Moscow. The most sweet and cozy museum of ancient Russian delicacies is probably located there.

The Museum of Russian dessert appeared in the city two years ago thanks to the efforts of artist Tatyana Féin and her team. A word “authors” is excellently good to this museum as the founder’s handwriting is visible in everything from mouthwatering scenes of the pictures on the walls and original lamps to the collection of old kitchen utensils.

The mansion, where the museum is housed (it is recently moved here from a modern building on the main street), built in the late XIX century and is the object of cultural heritage. Once it belonged to the merchant's wife Fokina, who sold flour, tea, sugar and other goods typical of the petty shops.

Tea and dessert exposition looks very organic here. Now all the museum collection occupies two rooms. In bigger rooms along the walls beautifully decorated antique cupboards are arranged. They are filled with ancient bagatelles: pots, teapots, dried herbs, waxworks of sweets with handwritten explanations and cooking recipes.
