Russian applie pie

With the end of the 19th century Charlotte russe became for inhabitants of Wrocław a synonym for the Russian cuisine. Not without a reason - in 1896 Wrocław was a place of a meeting between the Prussian emperor William II and the tsar Nicolas II of Russia. Menu of the ceremonial dinner - Indian soup, roe deer fillet in Italian, chicken in Alsatian manner, globe artichokes stuffed with bone marrow and truffle pudding - caused a sensation in the city, but Charlotte russe was from now on regarded as an indication of the splendour on the table.
