About Our Name:
The word “Stroganov” or “Strogonov” also spelled in the French manner as Stroganoff, was referred to as a family highly successful, noble Russian merchants, industrialists, landowners, and statesmen of the16th-20centuries. Feoder Stroganov, the progenitor of the family, settled in Solvychegodsk (north of Russia) in the late 15century. His son Anikey Stroganov (1488-1570) opened the salteries in 1515, which would later become a huge industry of salt making. In 1558, Ivan the Terrible granted to Anikey Stroganov and his successors large estate in what was at the time the eastern edge of Russian settlement. In 1566 at the Stroganov family's request their lands were included in the “oprichnina”, the territory within Russia under the direct authority of Ivan the Terrible. Seizing lands from the local population by conquest and colonizing them with incoming Russian peasants, the Stroganovs developed farming, hunting, salt works, fishing, and ore mining in these areas. They built towns, fortresses and at the same time, suppressed local unrest with the help of small private armies (such private units were known as “druzhinas”), and annexed new lands in the Urals and Siberia in favor of Russia. In the 17 century, the Stroganovs invested heavily in the salt industry in Solikamsk. In the 1680s, Grigory Stroganov (1656-1715) untied all the scattered lands of the heirs of the children of Anikey Stroganov. In the 18 century, the Stroganovs established a number of iron work and copper-smelting factories in the Urals. During the Great Northern War of 1700-1721, the Stroganovs rendered sizable financial support to the government of Peter the Great, for which would be raised to the rank of baron in 1722 and later to that of a count.
The sequence of events that took place within the Stroganovs family went down in history, but unfortunately these events would have been forgotten by most of the modern world if not for the count, Alexander Stroganov (1795-1891). In those days, it was in style for wealthy noble men to have what was known as an “Open Table”. Alexander Stroganov was no stranger to the hosting of an open table to his residence in the city of Odessa. Any clean-dressed and well-educated person could come in and have a full free meal. It was custom to discuss; politics, art, poetry, and literature. Count Stoganov's Open Table became so popular that he ordered his chef to create a signature dish that signified the traditional event; elegant, delicious an fulfilling. It became one of the most popular, well-known dishes of the Russian cuisine around the world. The preparation combined 2 techniques: One is French, which is frying thin cuts of meat over high flames for a short period of time, and another is Russian which is cooking meat in sauce instead of serving sauce separately.
I, Alexander Rabinovich, the owner and founder of Stroganoff Restaurant was born in the same city of Odessa, and all my life was so fascinated by the story and the idea of serving people high quality and delicious food. I simply could not resist the idea of combining two cooking styles to create my own signature Stroganoff dish. That is why I decided to name my restaurant “Stroganoff” and make Beef Stroganoff our most sought-after dish.
