Germans from Russia Cooking

This project focuses primarily on the cooking traditions brought with settlers from Russia in the late 1800s and early 1900s which are still very much a part of the cultural landscape of one of North Dakota's largest ethnic groups -- Germans from Russia who live in the central and south-central region of the state. Among the documentation are a news clip on a successful bakery specializing in German from Russia food, photographs, a menu from a restaurant well-known for its German from Russia dishes, and a video of several dishes being prepared by Germans from Russia whose recipes have been handed down to them by their parents and grandparents.
