What’s for dinner?

Standard

Just a rehearsal for Christmas dinner.

As usual the most of the food on the table will be from traditional Russian cuisine.

 Here is one of the favourites : Herring under a Fur Coat

You might raise your brows:  under a fur coat?

That’s right, it is a literal translation of the name.  Sometimes we call it SHUBA , which is the word for a fur coat in Russian. And of cause there is no fur on a plate. It is simply diced smoked or cured herring filets dressed 🙂 with root vegetables, egg and mayonnaise, one of those dishes that you either love or hate. Though I can definitely say that I don’t know any Russian who does not like it.

On the hot summer day there is nothing as good and refreshing as OKROSHKA – type of Russian cold soup: mixture of chopped fresh veggies, eggs and new potatoes, lots of fresh herbs and of course KVAS traditional russian drink.  All served with crème fraîche or greek yoghurt . Yummy!
