A synopsis of your research on the recipe and the area where the recipe originated.
      This is a favorite of the Russian people.  It has been for a long time.  I found that out by reading a book about
Russian food.  I could not find an exact date when it was first cooked.

Your description of the experience of preparing and the tasting of the recipe(any ingredients you needed to substitute, any changes you made to the recipe....
does it remind you of something you tasted before?  What would you serve to accompany it? ETC.
    It takes about 20 minutes to prepare, maybe a little longer.  It is effortless and the requirements of the recipe are not
expensive to purchase.   I had 3 people sample it and liked it.  They recommended that cut up apples and organges
 could be dripped into it.  We felt that would taste good.

Like a wine recommendation to accompany a dish, make a recommendation of a reading from Russian literature that would accompany the making or the tasting of the dish you prepared.  Perhaps the reading would the mood of the dish, its spiciness or it's sweetness.....perhaps there was a mention of one of the ingredients or the dish itself in the reading...etc.  You may select from the stories read or presented in class, or some other Russian work with which you are familiar.  THE OVERCOAT!
