Russia is a very large country and as such Russian cuisine is very diverse. Russia is mainly a northern country with a very cold and long lasting winter and because of this fact Russian food developed with the idea that food should give as much energy and warmth as possible to survive during the winter time. The Russian diet is based on crops that can thrive in cold climates, such as grains like rye, barley, and wheat along with root vegetables such as beets, turnips, potatoes, onions and cabbage. Russian foods are high in carbohydrates and fats. Fresh fruits and vegetables are not very common in Russian recipes. Instead they favor food items that store well over long periods of time using them to make thick hearty stews and soups. Soup is an important part of every meal in Russia. If you have the opportunity try the famous Russian soup Borcsh made of beet and meat, usually served with sour cream. Also because of the long winters pickling and salting became a big tradition in Russian food. Meats and fish are salted and dried to keep them from spoiling. Many vegetable are pickled with salt fish and pickles are key features of the Russian diet to this day.
One thing no one can deny is that Russians love their bread !! Their favorite is heavy dark rye bread. It is served with almost every meal and holds a big place in their culture and traditions. When guests arrive at a person’s home they are welcomed with bread and salt. The guest is expected to dip the bread in the salt and eat it to show respect to the home owner. Salted bread is eaten at many holiday celebrations and even included in the wedding festivities.
