Recipe of Russian pancakes or "blini"
2 eggs
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and salt. Sift the flour into the bowl, and stir in along with the milk. Mix until smooth and well blended. The batter should be thin.
Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil the pan or spray with cooking spray. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the batter, or as much as desired, into the pan. Tilt the pan to spread the batter out evenly. When the edges are crisp looking and the center appears dry, slide a spatula carefully under the blin. Flip, and cook for about 1 minute on the other side, or until lightly browned.
Remove blini to a plate. Put a little butter on top, and continue to stack the blini on top of each other. To serve, spread with desired filling, then fold in half, and in half again to form a triangle.

I like slow food. I think it's useful food for people.I like to eat slow, because It is tasty and my mom cooks well.
Pelmeni are National dish from my country.I would recommend it to the world.
I think Genetically-Modified food is very dangerous for people. Useful food can not contain GM.
Food additives improve taste of food.

I think GM food is Dangerous.

Surin Dmitry
I really like fast food, but I have got used to the slow food. It is much better.
I care where my food from. In shops, I try to choose foods carefully. I would recommend to the world such national dishes as kvass and pancakes.

It's a recipe of the Russian traditional cold soup based on kvass and it's called "okroshka", it's very special and peculiar dish:

I think GM foods are no more dangerous than normal plants
Food additives can be useful, but they can also cause hard damage to health.
Luchinkin Pasha
I like slow meal, because in my opinion slow food more healthy food, than fast food. But not always there is a lot of time for slow food, therefore people eat fast food. To me not all the same where has comes eat, I most of all like the food, prepared houses. I very much like to prepare and often I think out the recipes of meal. In my opinion the best meal in Italy, I did not try the present Italian food, but very much it would be desirable to try. I consider, that genetically modified meal as well as food additives are very harmful to an organism.

Chugunov Roman

I don't care what I eat. I can eat almost all food. I like both slow food and fast food. The most important for me is taste of food. It must be delicious. I don't care where the food I eat comes from, it only must be harmless. But it would be better if food will be from village it is more healthy
I will strongly recomend you 'Pelmeni'! It is fast-cooking, and very delicious, I like it very much. And from fast food I recomend you to taste 'Doner', may be it is not russian, but it is very delicious! My attitude for GM food is neutral may be becase I don't meet with it very often, or may be I don't notice it. So I don't care about it, I don't know very much about food addictives, I don,t know good it, or bad. If they exist, they must be useful for something.

Kretinin Vasily
I don't like fast food because it's not very healthy, but unfortunately often I haven't enought time for slow food. I don't care where my food is from, I think Ministry of Health and some other structures already took care about it. I'd recommend to taste okroshka with kvass, first is traditional cold soup and second is delicious russian drink. I don't know GM food is harmful or not. But at least describings like "carrot with rat gene" make me wary. Scientifically proved that many food additives are noxious to people, and moreover some of it are carcinogenic. So I don't think food additives are good way to make meal tastier.

Marina Samoschenko

I do not like fast food, it is harmful. I like slow food, it is useful and delicious. I'm worried about where the food comes, because food can be cooked out of bad products. I think genetically-modified food is not useful for people, because these products are synthetic and, maybe, dangerous for us. I think food additives can not help people, because it is not natural.

Saying that you love slow food, you are deceiving yourself. Every day you're looking for any place where you can buy fast food, without noticing it. Studying at the Institute of fast food is your best friend. It is difficult today to find food, in the which there would be food additives. From them we're having allergies and disease, this is may be a good thing? Of traditional cuisine advise Borsch, this soup is best done with fresh vegetables for a delicious and pleasant taste.

I prefer slow food, because it’s very delicious and useful for health. When I don’t have time to eat properly, sometimes I eat fast-food. I don’t care where produce product, which I use in food. I prefer domestic products than foreign. I would recommend http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_Stroganoff, because I like eat meat. I try not to eat genetically-modified food. It’s bad for health. Scientists invented food additives that people were dependent on this product. They add flavor enhancers and a man becomes a dependent.

Aleksey Nikitin

I like Slow Food, because Slow Food is less harmful than fast food and tasty (to me). Fast food is very harmful to the stomach. Yes, when there is no time to cook something yourself have to eat fast food. But I do not recommend to use it.
I love to eat at home, where no one will hurry and not looking at you (not a pleasant feeling, is not it?).
Russian dishes are delicious and are particularly useful, as these dishes are prepared from natural products, no chemicals and other harmful additives.

Tereshkevich Vlad
I don't love fast food, I prefer to eat slow meal as it is more more useful more. But sometimes all the same it is necessary to eat and fast food when I haven't enough time. I especially am not interested from where to me deliver meal, but in features with fruit I try to take the checked up products, because in our shops a lot of the poor-quality goods. From our kitchen I would like to recommend a borsch, solyanka, okroshka, pelmeni. I very much love these dishes and I think they will be pleasant to much. I consider that a genetically-modified products aren't so useful to the person, I prefer natural products. About food additives I consider that better them not to use though I can doubt.
