Russian cuisine is indeed distinct and has evolved over a period of time. We also sense a strong influence of different social, geographical, economic, and historical factors on this cuisine. While it has many popular delicacies to its credit, Stroganoff is certainly one of the classics. Did you know that Stroganoff is said to have been invented by a French chef named Charles Briere in 1891, to win a St. Petersburg cooking contest? That was when the first Beef Stroganoff was prepared, which was apparently named after one of the wealthiest families – Stroganovs, for whom the chef used to cook for. It quickly became a sensation, first in Russia and then in China, but arrived in the United States pretty late, somewhere in late 1920s. In fact, the first recipe for Beef Stroganoff appeared in an English cookbook in 1932.
