Sunny - we probably don't really know what to ask for so why don't you post some - I for one wouldn't know what dish to ask for because I'm not familiar with any. I could change the thread title to Sunny's Russian Recipes.

I remember that the Russian family I knew put a few dishes on the table. I did make some, my Mum made the eggplant dip thing a few months ago with tomato and we enjoyed that heated on toast. I must find my book, it has been put away. We always have jars of fish in any shop around here so that is a good idea for me.

I have also been intrigued by Russian cooking. This is a website I just stumbled across a few days ago and it is packed with interesting recipes and nice articles also. Take a look!!

I never really liked this site; I donít know, something about the recipes that just doesnít sound real. As if, somebody took a normal recipe and decided to make into something extremely fancy or weird. I donít know. I actually have never run across a decent English book or e-site of Russian cuisine. There are very few of them to begin with.

ruscuisine is pretty good. many of the recipes have been westernized for ingredients etc, but are close to what I recognize from what I have been served in homes and restaurants both here and in Eastern Europe.

Also remember, as with any national cuisine, there are local variants, rigorously guarded and defended as the REAL item. But for any one interested in Russian foods and recipes, this is a goos site. Also check out Dover Publications' ethnic cookbook reprints. lotta good stuff there.

This is a big confession, but I have sometimes felt that way about American food. But I find myself sticking up for American cooking these days. I think if you give things a chance eventually you work out where it is all coming from.

Maniac, the site was very interesting. I've bookmarked it for further inspection.
K&C, I think American cooking is great! Our ethnic diversity and plentiful supply of food has brought all the world's great quisines to our fingertips.
So we mix & match a little...that's what makes it so good.

I think some of the posts in this thread have frightened off the OP, she/he hasn't added any Russian recipes to this thread.

I would be interested, I had a Russian girl whose family came over to Scotland when she was about 12 (her Dad was a lecturer at the Uni, I seem to recall) - I was often invited to tea or to dinner and some of the food was really delicious. So I beg to differ that Russians can't cook
