Putin and Kim Jong-un shared lavish meal together including a British classic

The special meal shared by despots leaders Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un has been revealed, and it contains a Scottish delicacy.

Earlier today, the pair met for four hours at Russia’s spaceport in the Far East of the country.

The pair had a meeting at the Vostochny Cosmodrome to talk weapons and supply-sharing as the Russian President prolongs his invasion of Ukraine, while the North Korean despot struggles to feed his people.

And speaking of feeding, details of a lavish meal the pair shared have been revealed.

The pair shared a lunch together, which, according to Kremlin-backed news site Moskovskij Komsomolets on Telegram, included a modern Scottish delicacy.

The pair started with an appetizer of duck salad with figs and nectarines, while the next course was dumplings willed with Kamchatka crab – also known as Alaskan King Crab.

The soup course the despots had was grass carp fish soup, which is a fish normally only found on the Sino-Russian border.

Then came a palette cleanser, in the form of a sorbet flavoured with the new Scottish delicacy of Sea Buckthorn.

The little orange berries are found attached to spiny shrubs grown mainly in the sand dunes along the east coast of Scotland – nowhere near Russia or North Korea.

It has become a favourite of top chefs in the UK, specifically those competing on Great British Menu when representing the Scotland region.

This came with two more hot dishes of sturgeon with potatoes and mushrooms, and beef entrecôte with baked vegetables.

The meal ended with a strange dessert of Taiga Lingonberries with pine nuts and condensed milk in the form of a “fairly light mousse”.

For the uninitiated, Taiga Lingonberries are only found in Siberia, and are a rich red berry.

It is thought that the pair had a lot of wine with each course, with a Cabernet Sauvignon being the main choice for the leaders.
