My name is Kirill and I will be taking care of you on your vegetarian adventure around my blog.


“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”



s a little boy I used to spend a lot of time in the kitchen with my Russian grandma – who was an inspiring cook and an amazing woman. She cared for people through the food she cooked and that was the foundation of my cooking style. I don’t count calories and I am not a nutritionist. What I do know is that Good Food is – healthy, balanced and cooked with love.

In 2015 I decided to change my food preferences to a vegetarian based diet and to my great surprise I realised how underestimated a meat-free diet is. I never preach to people to become vegetarian, 

in my opinion it is a very personal choice. What I do want is to show how rich and diverse vegetarianism can be. Recently a good friend of mine after eating some of my food for a while said – “if only I knew how to cook such delicious vegetarian food, I would start eating more of it much sooner.’’ So I have decided to start a blog as a way of showing my long term passion for good vegetarian food and desire to share it with you guys.

I hope you will enjoy cooking with me at The Vegetarian Department and it will bring something good healthy and delicious into your kitchen.
