Being an expat comes with its own challenges – new people, new culture around, and of course new food! No surprise that we sometimes feel homesick and miss our native cuisine.
I am of Russian origin myself and after over 6 years that I have lived abroad I still have periods of craving my granny’s hand pies, typical Russian (or actually Soviet Union) table settings for New Years Eve and traditional feasts.
Of course you can cook it all yourself living here in Zurich – even Russian salad and our all time favourite yogurt-like drink “Kefir” can be found here in local stores. But still, most of Russian food is very time-consuming to cook, and often it’s just not the same.
So, when you are suddenly invited to a Russian Food Party, you know you can’t miss it!
The invitation already says it all – dress to impress! My Russian imagination immediately started to draw images of gorgeous women at full parade, wearing long evening gowns, spontaneous wild dancing on the tables, and rivers of alcohol pouring into endless glasses – and yes, this is exactly how Russian people party – everything just has to be a bit over the top. And of course the food! Mmm, Russian salad – bring it on! Borsch, lots of meat, roasted potatoes, hand pies, sour cabbage and pickled cucumbers – you name it!
In fact, the Russian Food Party event, hosted at Palavrion Restaurant in Zurich on June 30th, turned out something quite different – but definitely not less exciting!
When I see asparagus at the local store I know – the spring is finally here! That’s when I pair it with tender green peas, colourful cherry tomatoes and whole grain pasta. And if you make your own pesto sauce to it – you will get a perfect pasta dish for a lovely lunch on your balcony!
So, lets grab these easy ingredients and cook – you will barely need 30 minutes to have this delicious dish on your table!
