Georgian cuisine

When hearing the term "Georgian cuisine", the famous chakhokhbili comes to my mind, naturally and automatically. I remember a rather tasty dish made of chicken, plentifully seasoned with fried onions, coriander, basil, garlics, red pepper, mint, estragon, and other spices. Everything would have beee OK, if my mother had not overdone it several years ago, when she prepared enough chakhokhbili for the next 10 years.

Italian cuisine

I once visited Porto Rotondo (Sardinia). A magnificent island, its shores washed by the Mediterranean Sea from the one side, and by the Tiranean Sea from the other. Sunshine, beaches, girls... But I don't really care about these. I just love to eat well! Tasty and filling food!
And there it was - a wonderful restaurant around the corner, with splendid Italian cooking.

Chinese cuisine

That is why the Chinese put cooking first, since a serious attitude towards food, and following all the rituals in preparing dishes, make up the backbone of their cooking traditions. I believe that neither the divine Shan-di nor the legendary Lao-Tse, nor the great Confucius would object to my assumption. And, possibly, they would put "the Gastronomic Cult" in third place after "the Cult of Heaven" and "the Cult of Predecessors".

Mexican cuisine

Despite their outlandish names which are difficult to spell: "Albondigos en Salsa de Almendra", "Sopa de Sobolia", "Fajitas", "Burrito", "Empanados", "Halapenos", or "Juevas Rancheras", the Mexican dishes (unlike many others) are easy to cook at home. Their recipes are simple, and almost all ingredients are well-known (and, you can by them at any market).

German cuisine: Ein, Zwei, Polizei

The first impression is really deceptive sometimes!
That's exactly what I can say about Germans and the German cuisine. I expected to meet stiff and rude Aryans, but instead I met very cheerful good-natured Germans.
The first of them is Ulrich Kartman, who owns an internationally-famous law firm. Such a nice man, who speaks four languages simultaneously: German, English, Russian, and the dialect of an African tribe where he lived for ten years.

Ukrainian cuisine

Budmo, hey! (Let's be!) "Evenings in the hamlet near Dykanka" The first thing which comes to my mind... No, that's not what I should say. The first picture which my imagination paints when I hear the words "Ukrainian cuisine" is an episode from the movie of Hohol's "Evenings in the hamlet near Dykanka", where varenyky, having rolled around by themselves in sour cream, jump into Patsiuk(The Rat)'s mouth. What a great moment! What a great delicacy! And what a great way to eat it!

UKRAINIAN CUISINE

Budmo, hey! (Let's be!) The first thing which comes to my mind... No, that's not what I should say. The first picture which my imagination paints when I hear the words "the Ukrainian cuisine" is an episode from the movie of Hohol's "Evenings in the hamlet near Dykanka", where varenyky, having rolled around by themselves in sour cream, jump into Patsiuk(The Rat)'s mouth. What a great moment! What a great delicacy! And what a great way to eat it! It is certainly a pity that nobody has yet invented a "remote control for the mouth and the plate", and the above method of delivering food into the mouth is just the devil's trick or Hohol's project that is impossible to implement. But then, the amount of halushky (by the way, in a big, big bowl) is just right for our healthy and inspired Ukrainian appetite! Never mind how other people eat, but we, not so rich people, or one can even say people very far from being rich, are used to eating in grand style. It is not without reason that our phrase, "Love comes and goes, but you will always want to eat!", simply does not translate well into other languages - probably foreigners simply just do not have such words. So, what am I talking about? Oh yeah, about the unmatched Ukrainian cuisine! "There's no fish better than tench, and no meat better than pork." Among all the dishes of Ukrainian cuisine, for example, that of the very beginning of the XX century, one can single out several subcategories, which were the most popular among native Ukrainian people: those made from grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits. Note than in the old days, dishes made from meat were considered food for festive days only, and among all the existing kinds of meat, the undisputable preference was given to pork and certainly (could there be any doubting it?) salo - oh, our Ukrainian salo!
