English term or phrase: Glossary of terms for kitchen utensils & verbs for helping out in the kitchen
Hello Again,
I must tell you that I have found your previous help invaluable. As stated above, I need some help in the kitchen. The company I work for has employed a young Russian with little english & we wish to communicate better.

Thanks

They are too many...


Explanation:
Hi,

I think it can take ages to list all more or less essential terms. What I\'d suggest that you can do is going to www.foreignword.com. Choose the English>Russian language combination, and enter the terms you need. If you don\'t find something, you are welcome to ask questions here!
But please don\'t forget to grade the answers you find most helpful - this is crucial for keeping the proz service running, while by answers and the total score of translators potential clients can choose the most qualified pros. Thank you!

See below.


Explanation:
I fully agree with all the previous answers. In addition to what has been mentioned above, I would like to recommend one place in the Web (
http://russian.about.com/homework/russian/library/blphrasebo... ).
This is a phrasebook of very basic Russian words and expressions (see some of the examples below).


I don't understand
Could you speak more slowly?, etc.


A glass of tea, please
I'd like some...

and more, which you need every minute.

You will also find some general phrases, to connect the words you need (e.g. in the previous above) into sentences. To find more words, you will, of course, need a dictionary (at least, an electronic one). In addition to foreignword.com, I would like to suggest another dictionary site (http://www.rambler.ru/dict/enru/), where you can find many more Russian words (in fact, scores of thousands more) by just entering the English word in the search bar. This will show all the kitchen words and much more.

To learn how to read Russian and do much more, try studying the site http://russian.about.com


Best regards.
