Россия питания (Russian food)

Artem and Ilana are both from Russia, and in the Photo Finish video we got them cooking to classic British dishes. So I think it’s only fair we take a moment to learn a bit about some classic Russian dishes!

Borshch is beet soup, and one of the most famous Russian traditional foods. Beets seem a strange base for soup to many Westerners, but there are plenty of reasons that this hearty soup is one of Russia’s most famous dishes. Full of vegetables and meat, the layered flavors in this soup are especially nice with a dollop of fresh sour cream.

Pelmeni are pastry dumplings filled typically with meatballs. They can be served alone, slathered in butter and topped with sour cream, or in a soup broth. Definitely a favorite in Russia and abroad!

These little pastries can be packed full of potatoes, meat, cabbage, or cheese.

Blini are also served rolled with a variety of fillings: jam, cheese, onions, or even chocolate syrup. At any restaurant where you aren’t sure of any of the other dishes, blini are always a safe bet.
