MENUS AT THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
RUSSIAN DINNER, Russian
ZAKOUSKI (Hors d'oevres)
ZAKOUSKI have a prominent position on every Russian menu. They consist of cold and hot delicacies, such as the following, served in the most appetizing and decorative way, since they are supposed to whet the appetite.
Notes For Serving
Be sure to serve vodka with zakouski, especially if your guests are Russian! Vodka, Russian aperitif, is almost tasteless, but very potent, and gives quite an after effect, so you may stop serving it if your guests should become too noisy and overly gay. Vodka must be very well iced and it should be served in small tumblers, because it is taken in one swallow, not sipped.
Soup may follow zakouski. With the soup you may serve piroshki or pirog (see recipe). Fish, meat or poultry course comes next and dessert and coffee conclude the dinner.
