  2. Hi, I was trying to understand Russian cuisine and came across your blog. I was wondering whether Russian cuisine differs across the regions of Russia, say east and west or north and south. Because Russia is a really large country. I am from India and we have a lot of variation in our cuisine, North Indian food is very different from South Indian food. Can you help me understand the differences in Russian cuisine?
