Master class on the preparation of the Tula gingerbread.
The real “Tula” gingerbread is a subject of art. Gingerbread cookies were created by bakers in collaboration with board carvers. After all, it was with the help of a carved plank that the gingerbread cookies in Tula were given a unique, convex pattern. You can find out the recipe and prepare your gingerbread at our master class under the guidance of a specialist.
According to some historians and archaeologists, the history of FIlimonov toys began as early as 1000 years ago. During archaeological excavations, some of the first, most primitive, clay toys of that period were found near the Tula region. They were small decorations for whistles in shape of birds, animals and people. Filimonov painting appeared on toys at the beginning of the 19th century. In our museum of samovars you can find out their history and decorate your very own clay toy.

The traditional shape of Russian lollipop is a rooster, but in 1489 the forms of fish, house and a Christmas tree were also used, since the shape of the rooster was too complicated. Nevertheless, taking as a basis the samovars presented in our museum, talented artists and craftsmen created unique forms for lollipops, and our chef has developed special recipes for the Samovar lollipops “in Grumant style”.
