Hi All! It the past, I spent a lot of time learning Russian cuisine and I did a number of researches on history of some Russian dishes. And If you don't mind, I'm ready to share my knowledge and answer your questions about russian cuisine. Is it true that russian pelmeni are of chinese origin? When did vodka appear? What is a difference between crepe and blini? Is there one and only recipe of a true borsch? ... if you have these or similar questions, just write them here and I'll do my best to give you an answer. ps. here is my photo of traditional siberian pelmeni, just to make this discussion more illustrated and draw a little bit of attention.
