Russia (Россия or Rossiya) and the Countries of the Former Soviet Union

For the next two weeks we’ll explore the traditions, culture and history of Russia through the lives of seven people living in Russia.  We’ll follow a group of students as they report on the clothing styles, architecture, folk art, and economy of modern Russia.  Then we’ll take a walk on the wild side as we view “Wild Russia” , part of a landmark High Definition documentary series.

Our meal for the first week will be a simple but tasty dish called Larissa’s Russian Stuffed Potato Recipe.  You can’t go wrong with a great stuffed potato.

For our second week, we’ll try a recipe that’s a little more ambitious.  It’s called,         Bacon Wrapped Chicken Meatloaf With A Cheesy, Mushroom Stuffing.  This will be a little more time intensive, but the results promise to be delicious.chef
