The food of Russia is based on fish, boultry, mushrooms,
berries, honey, and crops. Black bread, a strong, dark, rye bread,
is extremely popular in Russia, and can be eaten with many of the
soups and stews. Another popular dish is Pirozhki, a dumpling that
can be stuffed with either sweet or savoury fillings, making it the
perfect dessert or main course.
Russia is also known worldwide for their alcohol, more
specifically, vodka. This potato based alcohol was actually
originally founded in Poland, but was bought to Russia by
merchants, and called 'aqua vitae', or 'the water of life'.
