About Russian Sooshka
Long since in Russia, SOOSHKA (Russian "Сушка") was considered a sign of prosperity and gastronomic well-being. They decorated the house - hung them along the walls, in parts of the stove, next to the windows. Often festive loaves, wedding carts decorated with sooshka and bagels (Russian "Баранка"). Meeting the just married couples the matchmakers put necklaces of sooshka around their necks, thus giving them welfare. In addition to the talisman and jewellery, sooshka was also an attribute of traditional Russian tea-drinking: when the table was served, on golden, painted Khohloma trays, tea with sooshka & bagels were served together.
