How to Cook dishes from Russia
Russia is a vast multi-ethnic country with a rich farming tradition, and has a tremendous amount to offer in the culinary arts. Many Russian dishes are derived from traditional peasant food eaten in the country's huge rural expanses.
Crops of rye, wheat, millet and barley provide the ingredients for breads, cereals, pancakes, kvass (a bread drink), and of course beer and vodka. Other common ingredients include a variety of vegetables as well as fish, poultry and game, as well as mushrooms, berries, and honey. Additionally, the influence of Russia's historic neighbours such as Persia and the Ottoman Empire can still be seen in some Russian dishes.
From the time of Catherine the Great (who reigned from 1762 to 1796), Russian nobility imported products and household staff from Austria, Germany and most especially France. The result was a plethora of new dishes, infact a whole new Franco-Russian cuisine, that includes some of the most famous "Russian" dishes: beef stroganoff, sharlotka (Charlotte Russe) and veal Prince Orloff.
Some popular Russian recipes and dishes include:
