Back home, I can’t say I was absolutely yearning to have further adventures in Russian cuisine, but it just so happened that the local supermarket had some Moscowskaya Salami, or “Russian Brand Beef and Pork Fat Kielbasa” as it said on the label. 

If there’s any better way of enhancing a beef dish than slipping in a little pork fat, I’d like to know what it is.

And the supermarket also sells various kinds of Baltika beer – I went for the porter, and as I ate and drank I could, for a moment, almost believe I was back in the former USSR, or at least in an erratic Russian restaurant in New York.
