Where to start
On this site you can discover a little bit about Russian cuisine and foods and perhaps get inspired for an everyday meal or get ideas how to treat your guests. Some recipes are quite popular all over the world while others might not yet be known to a wide audience.
Since Russia is a multicultural country, its cuisine has incorporated quite a number of culinary hits from many nationalities in the vast region. Such recipes have preserved their national twist and integrity and yet also become a part of culinary culture – for example, Ukrainian borscht, Uzbek pilaf rice, Georgian kharcho etc. So don’t be surprised if you stumble upon such recipes here.
You can also find here information about Russian food products which can be ingredients of the recipes or enjoyed on their own. Recipe categories will help you navigate in this culinary journey. In addition, we would like to highlight a few recipes which we think can be a good starting point to discover Russian food. If you have any questions or ideas you are very welcome to share those with us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to organize a party with a Russian twist, the Finger foods section will help you.
