Norilsk women not supposed to cook at home

Norilsk women not supposed to cook at home

December 25, 2022

The communal kitchens of communal apartments and the small cells of the Hrushchev epoch houses were not convenient for cooking family meals.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. It was planned that a woman freed from domestic labor would buy ready-made meals and semi-finished products in cookeries and house kitchens, which in the 1960s began to be placed in almost every yard – on the ground floors of residential buildings.

Later, in the 1970s, they were replaced by eateries – small catering points specializing in certain dishes.

In addition to Pirozhkovaya (cooking pies) and Varenichnaya (cooking dumplings), memorable to the Norilsk people, on Leninsky Prospect in Norilsk there were three Pelmennayas (dumplings), two Cheburechnayas (meat pies), and also Mantnaya, Belyashnaya, Bulbyanaya, Bouillonnaya, Kupatnaya, and Hitchinnaya.

In total, there were about 20 different eateries in the city, including the trendy Pizzeria, which opened in 1985 on Pavlova street, 20. They were lifesaver for schoolchildren and students, and for bachelors, and just for Norilsk people walking on a day off.

Surprisingly, it’s not the chic Norilsk restaurants, such as Lama or Taimyr that the Norilsk people remember with trepidation, but those small catering points.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we said that the first public New Year tree stood at the Zero Point.
