  • DID YOU KNOW…
    • Olivier salad is a traditional salad dish in Russian cuisine. In many countries, the dish is commonly referred to as Russian salad. The original version of the salad was invented in the 1860s by a  chef of Belgian origin, Lucien Olivier, the chef of the Hermitage, one of Moscow’s most celebrated restaurants. Olivier’s salad quickly became immensely popular with Hermitage regulars, and became the restaurant’s signature dish. The exact recipe, particularly that of the dressing, was a jealously guarded secret. The original Olivier dressing was a type of mayonnaise, made with French wine vinegar, mustard, and Provençal olive oil; its exact recipe, however, remains unknown. | wikipedia.org
