One of the most cheerful Slavic folk holidays — Maslenitsa is celebrated in 2020 from 24th February till 1st March. Also known as “pancake week”, it’s a way to welcome spring by eating pancakes (“blini”, which are more like French crepes, rather than American pancakes). Topped or filled with sour cream, caviar, salmon, cottage cheese, berries or jam, they are freshly made every day and supposedly symbolize the Sun. By eating pancakes, people consume its warmth and energy.
Please share your favorite blini recipes and celebrate with us!

Your fridge smells horrible? Every day you are throwing spoiled food? Your refrigerator needs to be organized!
The back of the fridge can become a haven for expired condiments, week old leftovers and molding vegetables if you’re not careful. This is why fridge organization is so important!
Today we had a wonderful opportunity to visit the Reception on the occasion of the Russian National Day.
We would like to thank Russian Consulate General in Hong Kong for inviting us as a food sponsor for this great cause. We’ll look forward to the next event and will be greatly pleased to contribute!
Our warmest congratulations on the upcoming Russia Day!
Rosehip tea, just like the fruit, has anti-cancer and immune-boosting properties. It is rich in antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress. The tea is a great source of vitamin C and can help ease a cold or even stave it off if you drink it regularly during the colder months.
