Holodets
Holodets is a traditional Russian meal which is served during various celebrations. The word holodets derives from the Russian word "holod" meaning "cold". It is so because the final step of its meal preparation is cooling it in the fridge. Holodets looks like a meat jelly with pieces of meat, at times vegetables such as carrot and spices. To prepare holodets is very easy, but very time-consuming at the same time. Do not waste your time and taste it during your Moscow tour.
