Word of the day: БОРЩ

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

Borsch is a masterpiece of the Russian cuisine. It takes about seven hours to make it if you follow the classic recipe. However, it’s worth every minute spent. It’s so delicious and nutritious! The taste of borsch is different with every cook. Besides, busy women manage to shorten the process by using, for example, store-bought broth and fully-cooked meat. However, borsch is made in almost every Russian kitchen. They say that a woman is a good wife only if she can cook borsch. Even though we don’t take that saying too seriously, it proves the nation’s love for borsch.

Hello! I did not mean to sound funny. Borscht is a traditional soup that originated in Eastern Europe and is commonly associated with Ukrainian and Russian cuisines. Why do you feel personally offended?
