    Would like to exchange the Jellied minced meat with a Mimosa salad. And the herring with a warm salad of baked onions and mushrooms in sour cream.

    My borsj is almost finished, but tomorrow I will start with half the above list + mimosa :)

    Any chance to drag Russian food into the 21st century and make it fresh and palatable? All that preserved, sour, fatty stuff probably saw babushkas through Soviet winters, but it looks like it’s had its time. I shivered looking at it, hoping I’ll never be invited to a Russian dinner!

  19. Simon says:

    I’d try all of it but the seafood.

    Every one of them, a thick, rich, tiny mouthful that the cool, cleansing vodka would make memorable.

    I once shared a table with some elderly Italian men, who taught me to shave off thin, thin, slices of fatty, spicy salami, sharp sheeps milk cheese and pickled spicy vegetables to go with a large glass of very raw and young red wine.

    The combination was magical.

    This is clearly a case of “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it”.

    To sad, only pixels…… BUT HOW NICE AND TASTY it is looking. LOVE THIS FOOD. Now I can’t sleep well DAMN YOU INTERNET.

    Cold fish soup – the best medicine from hangover if you can’t see alcohol . Better only juice of sour cabbage.
