December #perspectives: A traditional shuba

We’re rounding off the year with a trip to the EMMA region. Presenting the final dish of 2019: shuba

The festive season is upon us, and to get in the mood, we’re presenting a traditional dish.

Shuba, or Russian herring salad, is a traditional Slavic dish that has a spot in most Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian and other households over major holidays like Christmas.

Colloquially known as “herring under a fur coat”, the layered salad is made with pickled herring that’s then covered by potatoes, onions, carrots, beetroots and eggs, with a final layer of mayonnaise and grated beetroot topping it all off for its characteristic purple hue.
