About Russian Foodie


This site is for anyone who is interested to learn how to cook delicious Russian food at home. I would like to share and celebrate my favourite tasty and simple Russian recipes, family meal ideas and some festive Russian dishes.

This blog is about what Russian food is today. Modern Russian cuisine is the contemporary take on the traditional Russian table with significant influence of the Soviet era as well as huge input from the national cuisines of ex-soviet states and Russia’s ethnic regions. That is why you can find some delicious Asian recipes alongside some funny Soviet “deficit survival” dishes (like marrow/squash spread Kabachkovaya ikra) in this blog.

I was born and raised in Moscow in a family with big love for cooking and food. My grandmother was a great cook and so is my mother. A table, “breaking” under excessive amount of festive food and elaborate dishes, is a very old Russian tradition of hospitality and this is still alive today.

Apple Charlotte recipe. 'Sharlotka' Russian dessert, pie, cake. Serve warm or cold. If desired with whipped cream, custard or vanilla ice cream

Sharlotka, orApple Charlotteis probably the most popular Russian sweet cake. It is famous for being simple, affordable and quick. No fancy ingredients are needed and the result is hard to spoil. If you need to fix something quickly for pudding you’d think of the apple Sharlotka as it takes no more than 20-30 minutes to prepare and about half an hour in the oven.

Enjoy the blog and Bon Appétit or Priyatnogo appetita as we say in Russian!
