Belarusian Cuisine

Belarusianfood.com is a collection of traditional and contemporary Belarusian food recipes. These recipes are ideal for home cooking and are very easy to cook yourself. Each recipe comes with a detailed cooking instructions and ingredients description and pictures to make cooking even easier.

Belarusian cuisine has a rich and interesting history. It traces its roots back hundreds years ago to medieval times of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The geographical location of modern Belarus was always a melting pot of different peoples and cultures. Belarusian, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, Jewish, Lithuanian, Latvian and Tartar cuisines have boiled together and created a gastronomical mix that has become what Belarusian cuisine is now.

The foundation of modern Belarusian cuisine is built on eating habits of Belarusian peasants from western eastern parts of Belarus with addition of dishes common among urban dwellers which are mostly based on Polish and Jewish cuisine. As a result Belarusian cuisine has developed its own unique set of popular dishes and cooking techniques which cannot be found in neighboring countries.

We hope that you find these dishes tasty. Enjoy.
