About me (English version)


I am really pleased to see you on my blog. My name is Irina Tereznikova (city Togliatty, Samara region, Russia). By the way, I live in Russian industrial city with Italian name ( called in honor of Italian communist Palmiro Togliatty). I am a beginner food blogger. Started feeling passionate about cooking  a bit spontaneously. In the recent past, I was the owner of a small company retail and wholesales selling car accessories and car sound (car alarm, car speakers, amplifiers and so on). After closing down my company and my retail shop, I have started been having a lot of free time, which I began to devote to learning English and cooking. That’s why I am planning to blog on 2 languages ( on purpose to have practice). Later, after  purchasing a country house, I  developed a passion for garden and cultivation of various vegetables too.  The stimulus to start cooking was a negative moment — worsening quality of food in our shops and supermarkets, especially a low quality level of ingredients.

In this blog I am trying to explore different cuisines from differnt countries and share my life experience. Traveling has inspired many of the recipes I will be sharing with you. On the other hand, I have decided to blog in English only about adapted old-fashioned Russian dishes and some dishes from former Soviet Union republics cuisine.

The name of this blog was made up at once. Bagel is close to old- traditional Russian fast food bublic (бублик) and  Beagle is the breed of my lovely dog Sherry.

I am really hoping you will be able to discover for yourself some useful and interesting information, facts, recepies and started be inspired  to make your own delicious dishes. Also to join the foodie community around the world!
