Russian Food Festival

St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Church, Friday-Saturday, May 17-18

by

There's no better way to describe the Russian Food Festival than by listing what's on the menu, so here's a smattering: beef Stroganoff; crepes filled with mushrooms, beef or homemade cottage cheese; stuffed peppers; meat- or potato-loaded chebureki pastries; sweet and savory piroshki; marinated mushrooms; vegetarian borscht; Napoleon cake; oreshki and Anastasia's coffee shariki. If you don't know what some of those things are, then the upcoming festival is the perfect time to find out. For two days, the St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Church in Boise will open its doors and welcome all comers for food, live Russian music and meet-and-greets with local iconographer Matthew Garrett. Head over to raise a glass of beer (or a vodka ball) to tradition.
