Alexei's Favorite food
« on: March 25, 2005, 10:54:42 AM »
I have just read in one of the memoirs that Alexei
liked simple russian black bread covered with big salt balls but he was not allowed to eat it due to the stomack problem.
When he was on the board of the "Standardt" he  always made efforts to take bread from the kitchen.

The Heir also loved kasha (buckwheat cooked like rice).  One seems to read the most about Alexei Nikolaevich's love of bliny though.  He recorded in his diary when he had them during Cheesefare Week - the last week before Great Lent - in 1918, and his mother the Empress sometimes prepared them for him herself, so dearly did she love her son and want to please him.
