Favorite dishes that remind Russian of their homeland


Well, do not live quietly Russian abroad - the more abundance, the more he pulls to his native table. Not surprisingly, theme restaurants and shops where you can buy understandable Russian products are so popular in metropolitan areas with a large number of visitors. Despite the vast geography, there are dishes that are cooked almost equally in different regions of Russia. When traveling abroad, recipes are kept in memory to not only periodically feel pleasant nostalgia, but also to surprise friends. So, what?

Traditional Russian Food


Borschch is a soup on beef broth. It is believed that the more skillful hostess soup will be brighter (in general, it should be bright red, almost burgundy). Thoughtfully the secret to success is clear - quality products and a solid hand. In fact, it is something very deep, symbolic. Good borscht can not but like, but only the Russians attribute to the emotions of his eating special characteristics.

Olivie Salad 

It is a traditional Christmas salad with a French name. In recent years, his type of variation has become popular - depending on the basic product (meat, sausage or fish), determine its purpose. So, you can try the salad in the dining room and in a good restaurant (by the way, all year round).


In general, in every country pancakes are called something of their own, very authentic. American and Russian pancakes compete for the primacy in seaside hotels. The distinctive feature of this dish in Russia is the incredible amount of variations of the fillings - both sweet and not sweet. Pancakes are served as starters as well as as a main course or dessert. And rest assured, no Russian can live without them for a long time.


Special meatballs. One of the most high-calorie dishes of Russian cuisine is minced meat or minced meat with onions and spices, fried in plenty of vegetable oil. It is customary for these meatballs to have a crunchy crust and remain soft and juicy inside.

Not life, but a fairy tale for Russian: a table filled with snacks: herring, Kholofetds, pickled vegetables. It is believed that with such food you can drink an inordinate amount of alcohol and continue to feel good.

Pickled vegetables are a classic of cold snacks, with many in Russia preparing such vegetables themselves: when the season comes, they make marinade and put cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes in jars. This is healthy food available all year round.

Vareniki and pelmeni 

These are dough products that are boiled in water. Toppings for the first course can be different - mushrooms, meat, cheese, sweet berries, potatoes (they are more elastic, hold their shape well and can be much larger in size). Pelmeni is traditionally cooked with minced meat and boiled in salted water, adding black pepper and bay leaf to it.

Contrary to what is supposedly home-cooked food, there are plenty of themed cafes and restaurants in Russia. There, they test different toppings, improve their feed, and offer different sauces. These products can be purchased at any supermarket or home store (they are sold frozen). Many prepare their homes themselves, however. Then it is sent to the freezer to prepare quickly when there is no time to have a full dinner.
