Bread - Хлеб

When we first arrived we ate simple, familiar food: apples, cheese, bread, yogurt. Gradually we have branched out. The breads are abundant. To our surprise, people don't bake a lot, but are are more inclined to buy bread. The breads don't have preservatives so they dry our very quickly. Most you slice yourself. The dark one is so called Russian black bread. The cheesy Italian one is actually "focaccio" and not all that common but we rather like it.

Our little lunch pictured shows deli pasta and "plov," a popular rice dish that we liked from the start.
