Vologda prepared a master class on Vepsian national cuisine. The Arhangelsk region presented an unusual soup with kelp, and the cooks of the Leningrad region teach how to properly fry smelt. Karelia has present a branded Karelian pastry – kosovik, and the Komi Republic – shangi made from rye dough with cereals, potatoes, cottage cheese and berries. Kaliningrad residents are taught how to cook the right creamy forshmak from herring fillets and frozen mackerel slices.
In Norilsk, a gastronomic festival has been held every summer since 2018. This year the event was dedicated to Scandinavian cuisine: the Norilsk people tasted smörrebred and tyunbredrulle in the fresh air, and also learned how to cook fish in the northern way. Last year, the townspeople themselves prepared a salad with smoked smelt.
