    my family never adds cheese to herring under coat or whatever the English version is XD plus, the way things are layered down in this salad is weird - not how it's usually done. the olyvie salad also lacks eggs.

    Does anyone care what these out-of-nowhere people think about the food they are offered? Most traditional recipes can be made many different ways, each one tasting slightly different than the one before. So what's going on here, aside from wasting time?

    4:11 NO, bread with caviar is not something anyone ate at the movies, unless you went to some exclusive movie theater for higher echelons of the communist party, LOL. This type of food was a special ocassion, dinner party food, never a snack to take with you outside of the house. That other guy's family who ate caviar at the beach must've been some unusually rich Soviet people. So much b.s. all-around.

    I would honestly have enjoyed it more if they only brought the two Russian guys and called it: Russians trying their childhood favorites.

  • ruth gara

    I’m on a fast right now and here are all my favorite foods in one!
    You can’t eat some of the salads plain, you need mashed potatoes or at least bread with it to be good. Especially the “herring in coat” salad. You just don’t do that, when everything is on the table obviously you’ll eat the hot foods with the salads, not just plain. So not a fair trial.
    Plus, many American ppl are narrow minded, like the girl, so it’s no use trying to get them to try something other than McDonald’s

    I sometimes just call it "shuba" to keep it short. Make it for New Year's all the time. Best if it stays in the fridge at least a day after making. The flavor is so much richer the next day. There are different variation of making it, but cheese won't go well with it. Cheese has a much sharper and contrasting flavor that dwarfs all the other ingredients. Though that sometimes might be a good thing, I don't think it is in this case. I also don't add eggs. I do a double layer. From bottom to top: herring, potato, carrots (slightly mayo it), beets (slightly mayo it), then repeat. A simpler recipe. Also they forgot to add that this was kind of like a VIP dish in the Soviet Union because herring was hard to come by.

    I am from Lithuania, so it's usual in m country to have that potato salad , but we call it ,,balta mišrainė''(white salad) and specially in my family we do not add pickles, we add fresh cucumbers. so there is that. I would love for you to try Lithuanian food - bulviniai blynai, cepelinai, kugelis, šalti barščiai, balandėliai, vėdarai. these are YUM YUM

      The guy on the left could be an Armenian or Georgian, the guy on the right might be a Russian Jew, not sure 100% about their ethnicity, but that would explain why they don't look like classic Slavs. Probably both have families that immigrated from Soviet Union, that's why they are in this video.

    What I don't understand about this kind of videos is that people do not respect food/culture/etc from other countries. If you do not like food - politely respond like "I would not prefer that, but thank you for letting me taste this dish" or etc. Stop saying cliche things if you do not know what they mean.
    People are childish here and that's pretty annoying.
