— Courtney Kleiber, who knew Devin Kelley, the Texas church gunman, since middle school.
One hundred years ago today, one of the century’s most momentous uprisings hit St. Petersburg. The Russian Revolution’s eventual outcome, the Soviet Union, offered hope for some but delivered suffering for many.
Throughout the centenary year, we explored the legacy of Communism in a series of Op-Eds, “Red Century.”
Perhaps less noted is how the revolution changed culinary history. Millions of émigrés of the remains of the Russian Empire took their cuisine with them.
“As the American, wandering a foreign land, longs for ham and eggs country style, so does the Russian exile want borsch, the national Russian soup with his meal,” The Times wrote in 1935. “And in New York he gets it.”
A Parisian cookbook from 1938 described borscht as “a Russian soup made from beef, duck, pork belly, garnished with cabbage julienne and beetroot.” (It also provided a Polish version.)
To this day, restaurants in Hong Kong serve “lor soong tong,” a soup derived from the borscht made by migrants from Russia and Eastern Europe who sought refuge in what was then a British colony.
And just last month, Ukraine sought to widen the soup’s global reach on Twitter: “@Google & @Apple, time to have a borscht emoji!”
