In the old days, people in Astashovo always enjoyed eating well and treating guests to delicious meals! Now, we offer breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, taking into account all the dietary needs and preferences of our guests.
We follow the “zero kilometre” principle of using local products as much as possible. Curd cheese and crème fraîche are made by the chef from his own cows’ milk. Farm-style cheese is produced at the closest farm to the Terem. Meat, poultry, and wild game are supplied by locals. Mushrooms and berries are gathered from the surrounding forests and garden-fresh vegetables are prepared. We dry the herbs and ferment the Ivan-chai tea ourselves.
Last, but not least, the coffee—no, it doesn’t grow beside our pumpkins—but we have the best coffee machine in the north of the Kostroma region. Espresso con panna with fresh country-style whipped cream is divine!
Breakfast is included in the room rate for guests in the Terem and Wing (if you are staying in one of the cottages, there is an additional charge for breakfast). For breakfast, we serve homemade tvorog (curd cheese) and smetana (crème fraîche), blinis (thin pancakes) or syrniki (fried curd cheese fritters), eggs and cereals, as well as our own jam and local honey.
Lunch and Dinner
Lunches and dinners are offered in the form of fixed sets from our chefs (without the possibility of ordering à la carte).
