What on Earth is this??? 8 most weird traditional dishes

Which Russian dessert is listed in the world top 25, do foreigners like kholodets and what is strange about Russian pancakes?

Kholodets

This dish is the leader of foreign anti-ratings of Russian cuisine. People from around the world sincerely do not understand why would you make jelly salty and use meat in it. They are yoused to sweet jelly for dessert! And if you mention that among the ingredients of this weird dish are pork ears and feet, you will never persuade a foreigner that kholodets is actually tasty.

Hot soups

Soups are not as popular in other countries as in Russia. Normally a foreign soup is a light vegetable broth or a cream soup. When the guests from abroad see our great variety of soups, they are at a complete loss.

Okroshka

At the word “kvas” foreigners are usually scared already. And when they see vegetables and sausages in it, they think that this is the payday for all their sins. They do not understand why would you pour a drink in the salad. The bravest guests can taste okroshka based on sour milk or mineral water, but not everyone’s stomach is strong enough.

Shahlik

However it is not an authentic Russian dish, a lot of foreigners think it is. Most people think that Russian cuisine is based on meat. It is associated with Russia because of the cold climate. To survive the Russian winter, you need a lot of energy. Where does it come from? Meat, for sure. Anyhow, shashlik is a favorite dish for almost everyone, except vegetarians.

Sirniki

Russian sirniki is included in the top 25 list of the best desserts in the world, created in 2015 by Business Insider. Not everyone understands how you can fry cottage cheese, however, having tasted the dish, everyone falls in love with it.

Blini

Blini is also a beloved Russian dessert. However, for the foreigners it is something that you eat with jam, honey or syrup. Blini with meat, caviar, fish or any other savory filling seem to them very strange.

Kompot

In fact, this drink is well-known in Europe as fruit punch. Europeans just don’t understand why do you boil it, complicating the cooking process. Asians do not understand it at all, as they don’t have anything like this.

Olivie

Foreigners are quite suspicious towards this salad, which is a compulsory New Year dish. Finely chopped vegetables with mayonnaise do not have anything in common with European salads! That’s why foreigners call it “Russian salad”. Anyway, a lot of people like it.
