One can say that Russian food is what the Russians originally eat. However, the lunch of a person who lives in Moscow differs much from the lunch of a person who lives in Siberian countryside. The cities are always in a hurry and the fast food is the permanent leader there. Meanwhile, nobody will like the taste of a hot dog in villages.
Russians eat various dishes, and traditional meals aren’t the only ones we like. So, Russian food in general is a set of traditional meals which most Russians eat not too often.

Russia is mainly a northern country with long-lasting cold winter. The food should gives much energy and warmth during the winter time. So, the essential components of Russian cuisine are those which provide more carbohydrates and fat rather than proteins. However, fresh fruits and vegetables are often used in meals. So, the top five components of a Russian meal are:
potato (boiled, fried, baked, potato chops, potato pancakes, potato soup, and mashed potato); bread (bread, toasts, bread-crumbs); eggs (boiled, fried); meat (pork and beef); butter (usually added in all meals and spread on bread).
Also popular: cabbage, milk, sour cream, curds, mushrooms, lard, cucumbers, tomatoes, apples, berries, honey, sugar, salt, garlic, onions.
To cook, you will need vegetable oil, salt, and pepper.

It should be mentioned that Russians normally eat 3 times a day which includes breakfast early in the morning, substantial dinner in the late afternoon, and supper early in the evening.
