I just realised I haven’t introduced myself properly. So hi, my name is Leila and I study hospitality management in TAMK. I like cats and dogs, food and wine. Briefly, that’s me.
So because of my study field we became talking about food because who doesn’t love food better than a restonomi! Now I know some of the basic food words in Russian and to make you (and myself) hungry here are some of them:
сыр мороженое шоколад
виноград хлеб лук
Funny, we also discovered that chicken in Russian is курица which sounds like Finnish word karitsa (baby lamb). And Russian word молоко (milk) is pronounced like Malaco, the Northern candy factory. Of course many of the food words are related to English, such as Банан, лимон and кофе so they are also easy to remember.
And now I’m starting to get hungry….
Ps. Wine is вино, by the way.
