Cossack Lunch in Medvedovskaya Village

Two-hundred years ago Tsarina Catherine II granted the land in southern Russia to the Cossacks. In day to day life, these people were faced with one difficult task – defending the State’s Azov-Black Sea borders. To this very day, the traditions of the Kuban Cossacks are kept in these Krasnodar villages. During his journey around the south of Russia, RTG TV host Stanislav Salnikov learned how to prepare Cossack-style carp, got the recipe for makovnik (a sweet poppy seed cake) and found out what zavivanets is. He then tried all of these dishes in a traditional Cossack house, a structure that helps illustrate perfectly how Cossacks lived on these lands 200 years ago.
