Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.
For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.
For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.
Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.
Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.
So, you're ready to throw a Russian BBQ party? Simply head to The Blue Bear Russian Grill flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes for simple and flavorful grilled meats and sides.
Flavor Profile: Onions, garlic, lemon, dill, bay leaves, sour cream, beets and walnuts.
Inspiration: Russian and Georgian grilled foods are known for their grilled meats marinated for a long time in simple concoctions. Cookouts are normally focused around the meat so elaborate salads are rarely found.
Think marinating meat overnight and getting together around a makeshift fire pit to grill up some tender meats with just a hint of onion and spices.
My Take: Marinated and grilled beef, pork and chicken served with a few table sauces and Russian and Georgian inspired side dishes.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Russian BBQ party.
I’ll admit it. I don’t speak Russian. But the good news is, great looking grilled meats does not need any translation. (Plus, this guy is not really a talker).
This is a good representation of what to expect from a BBQ, done Russian style.
