From the Russian Kitchen

Russian cuisine is more than vodka and pickled vegetables! The Russian kitchen is as dynamic and versatile as the Slavic territories. Berries, herbs and mushrooms, garden vegetables, breads, meats and fish, comprise the backbone of any babushka's recipe book -- borsch and shi soups, pelmeni and vareniki dumplings, olivier and vinigret salads, currant jams and other sweet delights that will satisfy any Russian soul!
