Russian Salads and Desserts in Edmonton

Cheers | Jul 23, 2008 09:54 PM

I recently stumbled upon a marvellous farmer's market stall that sells Russian salads, soups and desserts. The stall, called Marina's Cuisine, carries home-made versions of the quintessential Olivier salad, a fabulous beet, prune and walnut salad, and an eggplant and garlic salad that will knock you off your feet. I also bought a huge slice of a 9 layer Russian Honey Torte that was smothered in fresh, finely chopped walnuts. It too was delicious. There were many other items to choose from of equal Russian heritage.

I am not aware of any other outlet in the city for food items such as this, especially of such high quality. The stall is at the Strathcona Farmer's Market on Saturdays and at the Callingwood Market on Wednesdays. It could also be at other locations. Has anybody else tried food from this kiosk?
