Русская кухня

Традиционная русская кухня - это богатая и сытная крестьянская кухня. В меню ресторана много холодоустойчивых корнеплодов, тушенки и жирных молочных продуктов. Темно-зеленая трава укропа (укроп) в изобилии присыпана многими блюдами. Возможно, это связано с убеждением, что это мужское растение способствует сексуальной потенции и плодовитости! Вот классика:

Блины

Bliny (pancakes) are an indispensable part of Russia's culinary tradition. Eaten in huge quantities throughout the year, any Russian restaurant has at least a few varieties both savory and sweet on the menu. Bliny are typically served as an entr?e with ham (vechina), caviar (ikra), cheese (syr), or as a dessert with vareniye (chunky, sweet fruit preserve), or honey (myod) and tvorog (sweet cottage cheese).

Супы

Russians are big on soups, especially borshch. Actually, borshch is said to come from the Ukraine. Borshch is chocked full of beetroot, and shchi is full of cabbage. Both can be very tasty, or the most awful dishwater you've ever come across. Solyanka is a thick and salty soup. In it you'll find anonymous meat bits, chopped up olives, pickles and a slice of lemon. Ukha is a clear fish soup. For Russians, a soup is incomplete without a dollop of sour cream./td>

Салаты

Everything in Russia comes with mayonnaise, the national dressing. Olivier salad, the New Year's salad, comes with potatoes, pickled cucumbers, carrot and canned ham. How about selyodka pod shuboy? This "herring-under-a-fur-coat" salad, which consists of herring, potato, beetroot and mayonnaise, wins the strangest name award. Venegret is boiled beetroot salad with onions, pickled cucumbers, carrots and for once, an oil dressing. Krabovy is a Soviet era favorite made from crab sticks, hard boiled eggs, rice and sweet corn.

Пельмени и Варенники

Pelmeny is a Russian dinner staple. The students' favorites are little dumplings stuffed with meat. They make a great winter snack and are the number one choice of your average Russian bachelor. Varenki are dumplings for vegetarians, usually filled with potato, cheese, cabbage, tvorog (that cottage cheese again), jam, or fruit.

Закуски

Originally borrowed from Scandinavia during the reign of Peter I, it has been incorporated into the national cuisine as the classic first course meal. It includes little open sandwiches hor d' oeuvres, pickles and smoked salmon - the jewel of the zakuski table is caviar, of course. Swallow the caviar down with iced vodka

Холодец

Congealed fat around a few scraps of fleshy meat, cooled and served in square slices. Enough to tempt anyone, right? It may look like dog food yet is enjoyed by Russians the country over, and they make a great show of cooking it up for special holidays like the New Year.
