Belarus - Food

August 1, 2017

Natalia sent this card to me from Belarus.  She wrote a lovely chatty note on the back which made me quite happy, as did this yummy looking card.

"Hello from Belarus! :-) My name's Natalia.
I've read on your profile that you'd like to receive a post card with a pic of some national dish on it.  Actually Belarusian cusine is connected with potato.  It is even called 'the second bread'! On the front side of the postcard you can see 'draniki'.

It's a very popular national dish in Belarus. Actually it's potato pancakes.  They are made from grated potatoes with flour, eggs, soda and salt. (It's a recipe of 'draniki' in Russian)"
