I sometimes check out the google translations of Russian recipes:
Heroically perechistim our bow, and then set on fire a pot with water and bring it to a boil and then we omit the onions in boiling water and let the whole pokipit depending on the bulb size 1-2.5 minutes.What fun. You can generally figure out what they are saying if you know what the desired result is. (this is part of a recipe for pickling onions)
I'm not crazy about all Russian food but some of it is quite interesting. I keep an eye out for recipes that use substitutions due to shortages from the Soviet Union era. I expect to draw on this knowledge once Obama is done transforming America. (see how I shoehorned that in there?)
Yes, I know that the Obamas will be ready with food solutions once the White European Oligarchy has been obliterated, but "contact your local community activist" is not a recipe.
