Russian cuisine

The main peculiarity of Russian cuisine of 19-20th century is abundance and variety of natural food. The territory of Russia is vastly covered with forests, abundant in rivers, lakes and seas. They all generously provide people with mushrooms, berries, nuts, honey, game, animals and fish. These gifts have been widely used by Russian people.

Various white straw crops have been cultivated in Russia since the earliest times. Therefore all sorts of bread, pies, pasties, kulebyakas, pancakes and grain kashas have also become the peculiarity of Russian cuisine.

Of course, Russian cuisine has not developed separately. It has been influenced by foreign cultures, as well as by national dishes of numerous nationalities of Russia.
