    Growing up I loved all of those except for herring under fur coat but now that I’m grown I’ve developed my taste for it and it’s not bad.

    In Russia we don’t eat this kind of food every day. It’s too expensive, we make such dishes at holidays mostly :p

    lol, RED CAVIAR in the Soviet Union Union?! In the movies!!!!? :))) you guys are so wrong! It was only eaten on New Years eve celebration or weddings and such and ONLY if you could actually acquire it, as if you'd had БЛАТ somewhere, which 90% of the population hadn't! :) Besides, you put too much of it on to actually taste good, of course the salt took over all other tastes :)

    It isn't a Russian food if it doesn't have маюнез.
