Post- Interview Comments
“Cossack Cuisine” is the Russian fresh homemade food company started by Stephen Jones with the input of Leeza Murina in June 2012. Though its origins go back much further.
Leeza says: ‘Back in St. Petersburg, where I was born I have my famous musical family to thank for my baking career. I grew up with a mum, grandmother and grandfather who were a celebrated concert pianist, conductor and choirmaster respectively. I was the black sheep of the family – musically illiterate but with such a desire to impress my gifted family with my own talents. With my grandfather’s guidance, I turned my hands to conducting the ingredients of our pantry. I quickly learned how to please people’s mouths as opposed to their ears!
As the only non-musician in the family, baking became an expression of my creativity and today it has become my forte!’
After meeting Stephen, who is a chef in his own right, having opened his first restaurant aged 24, Leeza was happy to share her family recipes with him and guide him in the creation of amazing Russian food. It provides Leeza with an opportunity to relax and be creative.
We retail our food and also offer exclusive wholesale arrangements. It’s our desire to share our love of quality Russian food with as many people we can 🙂
