to the world of the Russian cuisine!

Believe it or not, but I wrote this blog out of horror. Really! I was horrified by all the food that is passed for Russian cuisine in other countries. These dishes have absolutely nothing to do with the real Russian food. It is more like a game of telephone, when a word is whispered from one person to another and by the time it gets to the last player the original meaning is completely lost. The same thing happens with the recipes of Russian dishes.

What you will not find in this blog is calorie counting. Russian food is nourishing, substantial and very tasty. Therefore, we will leave calorie counting for another day and just enjoy ourselves here!

Usually foreigners think that ​​the Russian cuisine includes three components: the pancakes, caviar and vodka. I want to break down this misconception.

First of all, the Russian cuisine in the last century has changed a lot. The cuisine itself and the dishes that are popular in Russia today are very different from the way they were cooked generations ago. Besides, the Russian cuisine has been influenced greatly by other countries. Let me remind you that for almost 70 years Russia has been one of the 15 republics of the Soviet Union. Many popular dishes have been borrowed during those years.

For example, borsch (Ukrainian soup), shashlik (Georgian shish-kebob), azu (Tatar meat stew) and Chicken Kiev became Russian favorites as well as many salads and drinks. While the Russian cuisine adopted cooking habits and preferences of the neighboring cultures, it modified them in order to fit into its own culinary tradition.

At the same time, the old traditional Russian dishes changed slowly according to the modern realities. The foods of the times long ago were simple and very similar to one another. All dishes were prepared in the traditional Russian oven mainly by stewing and baking. The Christian Orthodox traditions greatly influenced the cuisine in Russia. Fast days made up a large part of the year which explains why the Russian cuisine was dominated by the vegetable, mushroom and fish dishes along with a variety of kashas made from grains and cereals.

The times were changing bringing along new technical opportunities - and with them came new gastronomic aspects.

Nowadays the Russian cuisine is the creative processing of other nations’ recipes blended with the Russian culinary traditions. There are new recipes added all the time on our website @ru-kitchen.ru

Cook them! Taste them! Enjoy them!
