Guriev porridge Recipe
Poridge has always been a traditional dish in Russia. But perhaps no other porridge is as famous as Guryevskaya.
Guryevka porridge is a traditional dish of Russian cuisine, but it has been invented only in the beginning of 19th century. It is named after count Dmitry Guriev, Minister of Finance and the member of the State Council. Supposedly, the porrdige has been first cooked by Zahar Kuzmin, who was the serf chef for Georgy Yurisovsky, retired army major, who once visited Guriev. Subsequently Guriev bought him with his family and made a full-time chef in his court. According to another version, Guriev has invented the recipe himself.
