Favorite Russian Recipe! :)
ok...so I am obsessed lately with Russian food. I have always had it here in NJ, and last week we were in Brighton Beach (again!) for some great food!
From these posts, I have gotten great Armenian recipes, Greek, Lebanese, etc.
Now I want Russian.! Since I am not Russian, but love the food, can anyone share a family recipe, or something they love Russian? I have a few from restaurants I like...an Uzbeck salad....
Thanks for any help! or any links to sites that may be useful...I am an avid cook, so I am not afraid of any recipes!
Thanks again!!! :)
Angelina, I too am trying to learn Russian cooking, for my fiancee, and I too am not Russian. Sometimes, he shows me a recipe, and sometimes I look recipes up here:
I find lots of good ones, especially those from "Olga's collection."
I've loved the sauerkraut soup: http://www.ruscuisine.com/recipes/soups/n--5/
and pelemeni: http://www.ruscuisine.com/recipes/bre...
I am a cheerleader for the soups...Kharcho, Rassolnik, solyanka...this lst(meat version) is a delight & I've had lots if fun in Russia in a search for "The Best" which is a search that I hope never ends. I'd compare several versions of each of these--and more--to get a feel for them.
Anything with mushrooms, of course, esp. the julienne (zhuliene) is a favorite of mine. The ones I have had on trains have always been good. And I like the oft-derided Salat Olivier (but it _can_ be bad, like anything else).
