The Russian diet gets a makeover

This report should please my friend Marko. He's written about the gustatory delights of currywurst before.

Forget the caviar, a German chef has imported to Russia Berlin's contribution to world gastronomy, the currywurst.

For a few days each week, visitors to Moscow's exclusive Ritz Carlton hotel can sample the dish, which consists of hot pork sausage cut into slices and covered with curry powder and a ketchup-style curry sauce.

But enjoying a currywurst on the hotel's roof terrace, overlooking the Russia capital, will set diners back around 22 euros, over ten times more than the popular snack costs in Germany.

The video below accompanied the report.
