The Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler, the Board of Directors and the office team wish you and your families a Happy Theophany!

For that special day, we are sharing with you our magic: the very famous “????” (Herring under a fur coat)!


“SHOUBAtranslates to “HERRING UNDER A FUR COAT” for short. It is a much-loved Russian meal popular during Theophany. “SHOUBAis a warm winter fur coat worn in Russia for hundreds of years. Herring Under a Fur Coat consists of layered potato, herring, carrots, beets, mayonnaise and grated egg which makes the dish look like it’s covering the herring by a bright purple fur coat.



Serves: 6 | Preparation: 1 hour | Cook: 20 minutes


  • 2 large beetroots
  • 3 potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 350g salted herring fillets, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 200g mayonnaise, or to taste
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and grated



  • Place unpeeled beetroots in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil. Boil beetroots for 45 to 50 minutes, or until they can be easily pierced with fork. Drain, cover with cold water from the tap, and let stand 15 minutes to cool.
  • Meanwhile, place unpeeled potatoes and carrots in a separate pan. Bring to the boil. Boil for 20 minutes, or until softened and the potatoes and carrots can be easily pierced with fork. Let cool.
  • Spread diced herring evenly on the bottom of a salad dish or mold. Top with the diced onion. Spread mayonnaise on top in a thin layer.
  • Once cool, peel and grate the potatoes, carrots and beetroot, keeping them separated.
  • Layer the potatoes on top of the onion. Spread with a thin layer of mayonnaise. Top with the grated carrot, then another layer of mayonnaise. Next add a layer of grated egg, then mayonnaise. Finally, top with the beetroot and then a final thin layer of mayonnaise.
  • Cover salad with cling film, then chill in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
