You can’t reach the first star

40 days before Christmas, the Advent (or Philippov) fast begins. It is quite strict, and its ending, when even the fish is not blessed, coincides in time with the celebration of the New Year. So the Orthodox are not allowed to drink wine on the night of 31 to 1. And the sixth of January is not supposed to be and there is nothing but juicy. It is believed that it was this dish that gave the name to Christmas Eve - the last day before Christmas. It was eaten in the evening, when the first star appeared in the sky - a dish of cereals, nuts and dried fruits was supposed to give strength to endure a long Christmas service.

SOCHIVO, Maxim Syrnikov's recipe
Take a glass of wheat grains. Rinse well, put in a cast-iron pot, pour three glasses of water, salt. Close the lid and place in a preheated oven for two to three hours. At the end of cooking, the wheat should be completely boiled, the grains should become soft and even partially burst. Cool them right in the pot, avoiding drying out. Sochivo should be just juicy, soft, but at the same time crumbly.
Mix grains with prepared raisins, finely chopped dried apricots, prunes, steamed and crushed poppy seeds, any nuts to taste. And then put it on a dish and pour over honey satiation - honey diluted with water in a ratio of one to one and brought to a boil.

There are a lot of similar recipes for sochi, perhaps the only correct one does not exist. The choice of cereals, cereals and their additives depended on the region, family income and personal preferences of the hostess. Somewhere they put kolivo on the table, somewhere - kutya, in fact, this is the same thing, only the names are different. It is important to remember that in the Russian ritual cuisine, kutya can be both modest and lenten, and on Christmas Eve it is lenten that is served. The Orthodox will be able to break the fast (that is, eat non-lenten food) only the next day, on Christmas Day.

Doesn't turn his head, crackles on his teeth

On Christmas Eve, they began to prepare for the Christmas feast - according to custom, at least 12 different dishes had to be prepared, according to the number of the holy apostles. Of course, it was difficult to maintain such a tradition - for such a rich menu, one had to have a certain income. In order to lure him just for Christmas, whole herds of roes were baked - gingerbread in the form of animals. They were both a delicacy and a talisman for the home.

On Christmas Eve the whole family sits down at the table and makes cows from yeast-free dough mixed with milk. Milk, wheat flour, salt are all ingredients. Then they will be taken out into the yard in the frost for the whole night, and on Christmas morning they will be sent to the oven. In memory of the holiday, several skillfully made figurines will be kept for the whole year.

In northern villages, roe deer were either cut out of rolled dough in a special shape (which was cherished and passed down by inheritance) or molded like a clay toy. They were first baked from rye flour, later from wheat flour, then burnt sugar was added to it, and in the 18th century various spices became available to the northerners, and roes became even tastier. The dough for them was prepared much in advance, kept in the cold - it was believed that this improved its quality. Ready-made gingerbreads were covered with white sugar or pink icing, which was obtained using cranberry or lingonberry juice.

KOZULI, recipe from the Arkhangelsk region
Burn 1 glass of sugar, dissolve in a glass of hot water. Add 2 more cups of sugar (until completely dissolved), 150 g butter, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, cloves and soda, 1 egg and 2 yolks. Pour about 0.5 kg of flour, knead the dough so that it does not stick to your hands. Keep the dough in a saucepan and cellophane in a cool place for a week. After that, add another 0.5 kg of granulated sugar to the dough and roll it out to a thickness of 0.5 cm. Cut the rolled dough into shapes from tin or thick paper and put it on a baking sheet greased with oil. Lubricate the gingerbread cookies with a beaten egg and water in a ratio of 1: 1 and put in the oven. Bake 5 - 7 minutes. Let the finished gingerbread cookies dry, then remove them from the baking sheet and decorate with icing.

Goose to the pig comrade

For a long time in Rus', the custom was to put hay on the table at Christmas - in memory of the manger in which the baby Jesus was born. It was placed either under the tablecloth or in the middle of the table. Meat dishes were arranged around: the more, the better, in several rows. There was pork, and mutton, and every kind of poultry; everything was suitable for a feast. But the Christmas menu was crowned, of course, with a goose - roasted whole, topped with pickled apples and sauerkraut. Good goose cooks were chosen carefully, in trusted shops from familiar sellers. Often on holidays, goose sellers, taking advantage of the rush demand, went on a swindle - that is, as explained in old cookbooks, "they introduced air into it through the back hole and sewed up the hole with some art and a little trickery" . Such an inflated goose was in no way suitable for the role of a signature dish, except perhaps for broth.

GESE OR DUCK, recipe 1834
After slaughtering and plucking a goose or duck cleanly, pick out the hemp from them with a small knife, sag the neck and wings, and take away the ferns, wash them cleaner and season them with a hairpin, fry on a spit or in the oven, greasing more often with oil and salt; be careful not to burn out.

PIG, recipe 1902
Take offal from a well-cleaned pig, boil in water, which should be slightly salted for taste; when the offal is cooked, chop them finely with five or more, depending on the size of the piglet, hard-boiled eggs, dilute it with raw eggs and then, having stuffed the piglet, sew up the cut, coat with oil and put in the oven to fry, when it is well browned, then pour piglet with juice that he will give from himself.

Fuck everything

The abundance of meat on the tables was explained by the fact that by Christmas the last cattle was always slaughtered in the villages so as not to feed them all winter. Such a way of managing existed and still exists in many countries, so that a baked suckling pig or a goose under a golden crust cannot be considered a purely Russian Christmas dish. And yet, there are still national differences. They concern mainly used seasonings and side dishes. If in Greece, for example, a piglet is served with celery, and in Germany with stewed cabbage, then horseradish has been considered the best supplement for us from time immemorial. It is absolutely universal, it was served with almost all dishes of Russian cuisine: meat, fish, cold and hot. The burning taste was often softened with sour cream, and for many years such a condiment was much more popular than the current mayonnaise.

BREAD HORSEHORT, monastic recipe
Cut off the crust from a loaf of rye bread, chop the crumb and brown in the oven until golden brown. Peel one radish, grind in a meat grinder or in a combine. Squeeze the juice and drain, only the pulp is used. Peel the horseradish root, chop and grind in the same way. Mix all the ingredients, add vinegar and grind until the sauce becomes thick. Add honey, salt, fragrant mint or ground cloves.

Don't hit the wedge under the oatmeal pancake

No Christmas table was complete without baking. Pies, pies, pies, kulebyaki, wickets or carols, which were presented to carolers - which was not there. Oatmeal, pancakes made from oatmeal stand apart in this row. The tradition of cooking them these days obviously goes back to pre-Christian times. The period itself from Christmas to Epiphany, Svyatka, in many places was called Avsenki or Ovsenitsy. They baked pancakes in ghee and generously experimented with various pies (fillings that are baked right in the dough). Yarn was good for oatmeal - from the word "spin", that is, fry on a thick layer of overheated oil. This method of culinary processing is very ancient, the researchers unearthed its roots almost in the 15th century. However, now it is actually out of use. But the dish remained, it is especially popular in Polish and Belarusian cuisine.

For flour gravy, fry the onion in melted lard and gradually add 2 tbsp. tablespoons of flour, pour hot water in a thin stream and bring to the consistency of sour cream.

Drink, mind your business

What did you drink for Christmas? If on Christmas Eve the menu was strictly regulated by the church rite, then after that everyone celebrated in accordance with their own taste and budget. This also applied to drinks - and liqueurs, and tinctures, and homemade wines and other intoxicating drinks, which in our time seem quite exotic.

However, traditional Russian drinks have always had options without degrees - for children or those who are strict even on holidays.

Pour 8 bottles of alcohol into a large bottle and add 12 spools of cinnamon, 5 spools of cardamom, 4 sprouts of cloves, 5 stalks of star anise, 2 nutmeg.

After 4 days, drain and sweeten with syrup, using 1 1/2 pounds of sugar for every 2 bottles of casserole. The longer the casserole is stored, the better it gets. But when you need to treat it to a friend or a guest who has arrived from afar, feed him in advance as satisfyingly as possible and the fattest dishes, and at the end of the dinner offer him a glass of casserole: it will seem like nectar to him.

It happened that the set table from Christmas was not cleaned until Epiphany itself - they were waiting for guests, then carolers, and even at home such a regime of endless food suited them. This tradition quite coincides with the modern scenario of the New Year holidays. The main thing is to remember: after all, Christmas is a church holiday, and on such days spiritual food is preferable for a believer.


BeliefsRussian cuisineHolidaysOld recipesTraditional dishesCookeryPublications of the Traditions section On the very day of the Christmas holiday, believers break their fast (they do not eat lean, but fast food). The twelve following days after Christmas are called holy days, or Christmas time. This is probably why, according to legend, there should be 12 dishes on the Christmas table. Some of them moved to the morning of January 7 from Christmas Eve - these are kutya and zvar. The rest, modest, dishes were waiting in the wings.

Christmas Eve: the first star

The holiday begins on the evening of January 6 - Christmas Eve comes. According to church rules and folk tradition, on this day they do not eat until the first star appears in the sky - in remembrance of the Bethlehem star, which showed the Magi the way to the place of the Nativity of Christ.

They also say that Christmas is not celebrated alone - it is a family holiday. It was customary to gather either with parents, or with the whole large family at the eldest in the family. Before the first star, the hostess had to prepare several lenten obligatory Christmas dishes. The main items in this menu were kutya, or sochivo, and vzvar (uzvar).

Sochivo, or Kutia

An indispensable dish without which neither Christmas nor Easter was celebrated in pre-revolutionary Russia. Christmas Eve - from Sochiva, or kuteinik - from Kutia, as they called the day before Christmas. And all of it passed in anticipation of the miracle of birth. It was believed that the richer and tastier the sochivo, the more fruitful the next year would be.

The products from which kutya was prepared were endowed with special significance: grain was considered a symbol of resurrection to life, honey was a symbol of health and a prosperous (sweet) life, and poppy promised prosperity in the family.

Pre-revolutionary writer A.A. Korinfsky wrote: “In the evening, on the eve of the Nativity of Christ, Russian people who invariably adhere to the old pious customs do not break the fast: according to the Church Charter, only sochivo is allowed to eat at this time. coming from November 15 (28) until the cheerful joyful Christmas time.

However, wheat was not always the basis of kutya. In the southern regions of Russia, rice was more often cooked. However, nuts, honey and dried fruits remained an unchanged part of the recipe.

Traditional Sochi recipe

  • wheat grains - one glass,
  • poppy - 100 g,
  • shelled walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews - 100 g,
  • honey - 3 tablespoons,
  • dried fruits.

Grind the grains in a wooden mortar, adding a little warm water so that the wheat shell comes off. Then the kernel must be separated from the husk, sifted and washed. Boil loose lean porridge in water, adding 2-3 cups of water to the cereal.

Grind poppy seeds until poppy milk is obtained, add honey to it, mix and put into wheat porridge. At the very end, add crushed nuts and dried fruits steamed with boiling water.

Rice juice

  • rice - 1 cup,
  • raisins - 50 g,
  • prunes - 50 g,
  • dried apricots - 50 g,
  • almonds or walnuts - 50 g,
  • honey - three tablespoons

Rinse rice, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Drain in a colander and rinse again with cold water. Then pour 1.5 cups of cold water and cook until tender, without removing the lid. Steam dried fruits in hot water (15-20 minutes).

Cut prunes and dried apricots. Crush the almonds. If all the water has not boiled away, it should be drained, the rice should be cooled. Add dried fruits, honey and nuts to the rice.


The second obligatory dish of the Christmas table. A broth was prepared from dried fruits, but honey was added instead of sugar. The most popular was apple broth with the addition of dried or soaked cranberries, lingonberries or raspberries.

In the south of Russia, smoked pear was always added to the drink. Mint, oregano, currant leaf, thyme and other fragrant herbs are often added. It is not necessary to boil the broth: it is enough to pour fruit with boiling water and leave to infuse. A thermos is perfect for this purpose. Often juicy is diluted with a boil and eaten in the form of liquid sweet porridge.

Lenten pancakes

Christmas Eve was not complete without Lenten dishes. But if kutya and vzvar were obligatory, then pancakes, vinaigrette, cabbage rolls, fish pies, vegetable stews or porridges remained welcome guests on the last day of fasting. Among this menu, pancakes were common. They wonderfully complemented boiled fish or caviar, jam or honey. Only they were made without milk and butter. For example, on potato broth or mineral water.


Lenten vinaigrette or with herring was served very often on Christmas Eve. The recipe is simple, but the dish turns out tasty and inexpensive, which made it possible to cook it in poor families. And in the houses of the wealthy, sturgeon or white salmon could be added to the Christmas vinaigrette.

Christmas: abundant fasting

When the night passes and after the service the family returns to the house, the long-awaited Christmas holiday comes. Lent is over, and meat dishes, milk and butter pies, oily fish and sumptuous desserts appear on the table.

It was believed that roast goose (or other poultry) and pork dishes should be an indispensable attribute of the Christmas meal. Of course, on the eve of Christmas, millions of geese, ducks, turkeys and chickens were brought to the country's bazaars.

"Christmas in Moscow felt long in advance - a cheerful, business hustle. They just started talking in Filippovka, on November 14, for the Christmas post, and already at the freight stations, especially in Rogozhskaya, geese cackle day and night -" goose trains "to Germany : it used to be, to the glaciers-wagons, a live load. You won’t believe it - hundreds of trains! A goose went through Moscow - from Kozlov, Tambov, Kursk, Saratov, Samara ... I don’t remember the Poltava region, Poland, Lithuania, Volyn: the paths from there are different. And duck, and chicken, and turkey, and black grouse ... wood grouse and hazel grouse, bacon-brisket, and ... - what only the soul requires for Christmas, "wrote Ivan Shmelev.

Christmas goose with sauerkraut

  • small goose,
  • cabbage - 800 g,
  • bulbs - 4 pcs.,
  • cumin - 0.5 tbsp,
  • salt,
  • oil.

If the carcass is frozen, let the goose lie down in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Then wash the goose, rub it inside and out with salt and cumin. If possible, you can boil the goose in red wine - whole, about 40 minutes. Wine will give the bird softness.

Stew sauerkraut with butter and onion in a saucepan, covered. Stuff the goose with this cabbage and fry on a baking sheet, pouring a little broth on it and pouring it over the goose. Then goose fat will be melted - you will water it.

Pig on the table

Another traditional product on the Christmas table was pork. According to legend, when Jesus was born, in the manger all the animals joyfully met the divine baby - except for the pig. She grunted annoyingly and prevented the baby from sleeping. That is why, as a punishment, the pig became an indispensable dish of the Christmas table.

Even during Lent, they began to bring to the capitals, to central fairs, whole carts with pork - there were huge carcasses, and barrels of corned beef, and suckling pigs. “Bad, bad, but two or three carcasses of pigs are needed, and black piglets, fry with porridge, about three dozen, and white pigs, for aspic, moloshnichki, two dozen, so that there is enough for plots,” Ivan Shmelev wrote in “The Summer of the Lord.

Many dishes were prepared from pork, but in every wealthy house the table was decorated with suckling pig with porridge or cold with horseradish.

Cold piglet with horseradish

The recipe from Ekaterina Avdeeva's book "Handbook of a Russian Experienced Housewife" is simple: cook the piglet whole in salt water with fragrant herbs - thyme, dill - and onion. Then cut into pieces and pour horseradish with sour cream. Serve cold.

Pork belly stuffed with cabbage and apples

In the old days, porridge with pork legs was served, but you can make pork belly with cabbage and apples with buckwheat porridge. It will turn out very juicy.

  • pork belly - 800 g,
  • cabbage - 400 g,
  • apples - 5 pcs.,
  • butter - 1 tbsp,
  • bulb - 1 pc.,
  • salt and pepper.

Chop fresh cabbage, salt and squeeze. Add finely chopped sour apples, oil to the cabbage, mix. Wash the pork belly, chop the bones in several places, cut a large hole between the bones and meat with a knife.

Put the prepared minced meat there, sew it up, place it on a frying pan or a baking sheet, sprinkle with finely chopped onion, add 3 tablespoons of water and fry in an oven heated to 200 ° C until cooked. Serve with crumbly buckwheat porridge.

Piglet and rooster jelly

Rinse the shank and legs of the piglet well and cut into pieces. Put in a saucepan, pour over cold water so that it covers the meat by a few centimeters, boil and remove the foam. After an hour, add the carcass of the rooster.

Boil aspic over very low heat for 6-8 hours until the water boils down to half its volume. 20 minutes before the end of cooking, add bay leaf, peppercorns and salt to taste to the broth. Remove the meat from the broth, separate from the bones and cut into pieces. Strain the broth. Pour chopped garlic on the bottom of the dish, lay out the meat, pour in the broth, mix gently with a spoon and put in the refrigerator until it hardens.
