Russia has a lot of great recipes and is the origin of the blini. Other food includes rich soups, sweet fudges and unique tea cakes.
This thickly textured, satisfying borscht soup, is a Russian classic, and can be enjoyed anytime of the year. Serves 4.
A classic recipe that we make every year at Christmas. I like to roll mine in icing sugar twice for good measure.
This is my take on the classic White Russian cocktail made with coffee liqueur, vodka and milk, for an extra twist use chocolate milk.
This is a Russian dish (Samrakand is the second largest city in Uzbekistan) that has an unusual combination of flavours with a great result. It's a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy.
These delicious chicken fritters are based on a Russian recipe. They are easy to make with a meat grinder, or buy pre-minced chicken.
A Russian potato salad with a difference: beetroots and carrots! Simple to make and a great barbie side dish.
This is a German style of the traditional Russian Beef Stroganoff which has the normal beef, mushrooms and paprika but also gherkins and normal cream instead of sour cream.
White Russians are usually made with milk but I prefer the richness of cream in this delicious cocktail. Great as a nightcap!
These little Russian pancakes have a deliciously distinctive flavour thanks to the buckwheat flour. Try them topped with a spoonful of your favourite dip.
This is a beautiful Russian apple cake where the apples are grated then soaked in rum before being added to the batter containing nuts, vanilla and cinnamon.
