Traditional Russian Foods

After the Pelmeni Party last Wednesday, I was inspired to look at other Russian foods.  I found an article on traditional foods that are not popular here in the United States.

Here are some of the foods discussed in the article:

  • Borshch--A beet soup full of vegetables and meat, served with sour cream. 
  • Pirozhki--Little pastries stuffed with potatoes, meat, cabbage, or cheese.
  • Ikra--Caviar served or blini, crepes.
  • Shashlyk--A kebab formed of any combination of meat and vegetables.
  • Morozhenoe--Ice cream topped with fruit, nuts, or chocolate.
