This happened, for example, with the famous salad Olivier, which became almost our national dish. But seafood continues to be delicacies, and we prepare the same salad with a sea cocktail, as a rule, only on holidays. And it's not even that the pleasure is expensive, but the fact that the recipes of this dish does not adapt to our national tastes.
