ЩИ (Shchi) Hoodie



Shipped from USA & EU! (depending on which is closer to the recipient's address)

Shchi is a Russian-style cabbage soup. It is a quintessential staple of every home cook. When sauerkraut is used instead, the soup is called sour shchi, while soups based on sorrel, spinach, nettle, and similar plants are called green shchi.

The soup has historically been equally loved by the rich and the poor. Based on availability of ingredients and observance of religious fasts, the soup could be ‘rich’ or ‘skoromnoe’ (as in ‘fatty’) long simmered in a stock of bones and meat, or ’empty’ (‘postnie‘) including only mushrooms and vegetables.

Shchi is a source of many folk sayings, like ‘Shchi da kasha – eda nasha‘ (‘Shchi and porridge is our food’) or ‘Gde Shchi, tam i russkih ishi‘ (‘Where there is shchi, there are Russians’).
