Famous Dishes of Russian Regions
July 31, 2018 19:44


Russia is famous not only for borshch, dumplings and kvass. Every region of this country has its own special dishes, which are well-known all over Russia. The popularity of such dishes goes far beyond the region, spreading throughout Russia and the world.



Siberian Dumplings
Dumplings are favoured by most of the Russian population. But over the Urals, in Siberia, love for the dumplings is special!
The fact is that making them all together in a family sitting was an old custom for many generations.

Speaking about the peculiarities of the Siberian dumplings, minced meat for their stuffing is often mixed with little pieces of crushed ice and cabbage mince. This gives them a special juiciness.
Also, unlike other types of ravioli, several kinds of meat - lamb, pork and beef - are taken for the mincemeat.



Tula Gingerbread
The city of Tula is famous not only for its historical weaponry and samovars. Tula is also known for its traditional Russian gingerbread.
Tula gingerbreads known since 1685 are the most famous of all Russian gingerbreads.
The peculiarity of Tula gingerbread is their traditional rectangular shape. The filling is classical: jam or condensed sweet milk. Their taste is special and incomparable. When travelling to Tula, make sure to taste this traditional dessert.

 

Kazan Chak-Chak

Another dessert loved all over Russia comes from the national Tatar cuisine. Like the Tatar cuisine in general, the chak-chak is very simple.
But it is incredibly tasty!
Chak-chak are little pieces of baked dough, held together with honey that they absorb. Nothing complicated!
But you just cannot pry yourself away from it.
Until the last piece is eaten, you will continue savouring this yummy dessert.


Bashkir Honey

Honey is produced all over Russia. But the honey of Bashkiria has its special, incomparable taste.
The predecessors of modern Bashkir beekeepers were collectors of forest honey. This is precisely the secret of the magic taste of modern Bashkir honey.
It is half forest, having absorbed the special flavours of forest herbs and flowers.
Besides, the unique taste of honey owes a lot to the special breed of wild Bashkir (Burzyan) bees.


Vologda Butter
Every Russian has tried this legendary butter at least once in their life. Unusually delicious and fragrant, it has been known far beyond the borders of the Vologda Region since the 19th century. The peculiarity of Vologda butter is its unique taste, which is attained due to special processing of fresh cream under high temperature. This gives the oil a specific "nutty" taste. Another feature of the Vologda butter is its exceptionally high-quality raw materials. The Vologda Region has always been rich in water meadows with mixed herbs. Cows grazing on such herbs gave very tasty and fatty milk.


Adygei Cheese

This traditional type of soft cheese is famous all over  Russia and loved by millions.
Its name goes back to the Republic of Adygea, inhabited by the Circassians, who have produced this soft and tender cheese for centuries.


Ossetian Pies

This legendary national dish of Ossetian cuisine has been given a new lease of life nowadays.

Ossetian pies are a collection name for traditional flat cakes with varied fillings of vegetables, meat, cheese, etc.

Due to their delicate and thin dough, the filling of the Ossetian pies is utterly enjoyable.

The unusual taste of Ossetian pies has gained them popularity far beyond North Ossetia itself.
