SOCHI, March 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Paralympic athletes have discovered the Russian cuisine for themselves while the Ukrainian beetroot soup - borsch has become their favourite dish, especially for the Canadian team, chefs of the Paralympic Village’s canteen told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The coaches of the Canadian team have said that it is for the first time they have discovered for themselves so tasty soups for the past four Paralympic Games,” the chefs said.
The Paralympic Village’s canteen is divided into four sectors: the Russian cuisine, the grill dishes and Asian and European cuisines, as well as fast food facilities.
The cooks took a many-months-long upgrade course before getting to the Paralympic kitchen, they said.
Variety in dishes is amazing as any athlete can choose whatever he or she likes without violating the diet.
