In fact, this hero was the cucumber, thanks to which the residents of Lukhovitsy were able to earn money and feed themselves in the hungry 90s of XX century. Then the townspeople literally saved huge harvests of cucumbers, they were sent for sale in Moscow, and residents of the Russian capital appreciated the high quality of Lukhovitsy cucumbers.

Dinner will be at an extraordinary place - the Bread Square kitchen workshop. Kitchen Shops used to be called taverns, where they were fed cheaply and kindly. But the cookery shop is not just a cafe, it is a real live museum of Russian culinary culture of the first quarter of XX century. The right mood will be created by a wall collection of posters of those interesting times, an interesting selection of colorful advertisements on a paper substrate under the plate and musical works reflecting the world of the era. The menu is divided into two parts: old-mode and proletarian... I think you've already guessed which dishes each part includes :) Both parts are equally tasty and worthy of attention, as is the cookery itself.
