My ultimate comfort food

Standard

On a cold rainy day like today my ultimate comfort food will always be Russian Borsch. Full of vitamins from every winter vegetable available, of a great colour and , I cannot describe, of a wonderful flavour, it is absolutely one of Must try!

The greatest thing about Borsch is that it gets better on the next and following day. Served with or without dollop of creme fraiche and good chunk of proper bread, it can be a starter or a light meal on it’s own.

Of course, there are many recipes depending on the region and country ( there is a Ukranian, Polish etc…) , everyone has their own secret. I don’t believe that there is such a thing as a Classic Borscht, it varies so much. But what I do know , that the one we serve here has never fail to surprise and impress our guests.
