Your host Begzsuren
Begzsuren (Bee) and his wife, Mungunsoyombo (Soy), are excited to bring Mongolian cuisine to your kitchen! During your online class, you will learn to cook two traditional Mongolian dishes: a windtight cup soup and vegetarian roll dumplings typically prepared for special occasions like the lunar new year or for honored guests. Bee and his wife learned to cook at an early age from their families. Mungunsoyombo learned how to make traditional Mongolian food healthier from her experience in nutritional studies. They live with their three children in the Uvur Gunt nature area, about 20km North West of Ulaanbaatar city in Mongolia. Begzsuren and his family have been hosting travelers since 2008 and they enjoy meeting people from all over the world, sharing their love for Mongolian food and culture. Begzsuren and Mungunsoyombo are also passionate about traveling, fitness and eating healthy.

"Wow- what a wonderful experience! Bee and Soy were incredibly warm and encouraging hosts. We had such a fantastic experience that we'd love to do another soon! Let's hope there are more classes with Bee and Soy in the future!"

"Bee is a blast to talk to, and he and his wife but together a great class. Very unusual (but not complicated) cooking methods that I will be using in the future. It was also great to get to see a little of life in rural Mongolia in the ger (yurt) where the family lives."
