Russian Food, Cuisine and Recipes



Recent scientific research shows that there are more neurons in our guts than in our brain. Gut flora is a complex system that affects our mood, our well-being, our health, and even our cognitive capacities. So the idea that we are what we eat is not just a metaphor, it’s the truth.

If that is really the case (and even if it is not), to eat like a Russian is to become one. The intensity of Russian food and drinks is not to be underestimated. A typical Russian meal leaves you very satisfied, drunk, and often unable to move. It is a sort of union with the universe that may start in a very extrovert way and finish in a very introvert way. This kind of journey is not something you will want to do every day, but every person who wants to understand Russia should try it at least three times to really know better. And every food communicates a very specific message that we tried to decipher on the pages that follow.
