Food Perestroika - Happy Holidays 2019!

Happy Holidays! I’m away for the rest of the year, but I have my usual present for you! Here’s a selection of recipes from this year’s posts that are guaranteed to be hits at the holiday table:

Food Perestroika - Happy Holidays 2019!

Then there are this year’s most popular posts, which rarely intersect with my personal holiday recommendations, but which I love just as much:

  1. My Somlói Galuska, Hungarian Dessert Dumplings, continues its irresistible ascension. It’s my most visited page this year! It’s no longer the top result when you google “somlói galuska,” since The Spruce Eats published their own recipe a few months ago, and obviously they have a lot more clout than me. But I’d still pick my recipe over theirs any day, and I’m 100% unbiased, of course.
  2. Bosanski Lonac, Bosnia’s National Dish, is a newcomer to this Top 5. Looking at the stats, it must have been mentioned somewhere online, and this brought me a ton of clicks. Hopefully, this will turn into a perennial trend.
  3. Bosnian Ćevapi with Kajmak, Ajvar, and Lepinja slips from last year’s second place. Yet I can’t tell you enough how great this recipe is. Between this and the lonac, I guess I can call Food Perestroika a Bosnian food blog now!
  4. Qurutob, Tajikistan’s National Dish, though no longer my top post, remains a solid contender. And how often do you get to try Tajik food?
  5. Pelmeni, Siberian Meat Dumplings, aren’t exactly the most exotic dish out there, but mine is an excellent recipe. Some days I wonder if I should publish a recipe for orange juice as my ticket to stardom…

And with that, I’ll see you in 2020. Next year will be Food Perestroika’s 10th birthday. How should I celebrate? Send me your suggestions!
