It’s beginning to look like Christmas…
The Christmas lights are sparkling on the streets, the Christmas tree is up, the Cristmas decorations , the Holly and the Mistletoe have found their place in the house , the TELLY is spoiling us with the magical movies, that we watch every Christmas and are never tired to watch them again and again at every Christmas to come , and magic is happening in Galya’s kitchen.
The Christmas treats platter will be full of traditional things like Mince pies and chocolates , and traditional Russian treats like, chocolate salami ( yes, very much loved and made in Russia since donkey years) , Zefir and some new easy to make Chocolate brandy balls.

Such a wonderful day was it: brilliant opportunity to visit the Second Delissime food fair in Limoges. Unfortunately, I could not taste the wines being driving afterwards, but what a real delish was the food tasting. The Pavillion, where the faire took place, was not big, nevertheless it took me about 4 hours just to walk around, take a few pictures and of course try one or two things. The artisans-producers , who participated in the fair were specially selected for high quality and originality of their products from all over France. It was great to talk to some of them and to exchange addresses. Delissime is one not to miss the next year!
To mark the end of summer season we invited a couple of friends around. The day turned out to be very warm and perfect for afternoon tea outside. But as usual, I could not limit myself to making just a couple of cakes. So I ended up cooking a russian food finger buffet: beetroot salad and spicy carrot salad served in spring rolls, cabbage kulebyaka, home made rye bead with tuna and egg spread, sausage rolls and home made hot dogs, cinnamon and raisin sweet rolls, plum tart and apple tart and cheese stuffed tomatoes.
Homemade freshly baked Marguerite bread and Hachapuri ( feta cheese buns)
Today the whole of France is celebrating Bastille day – the most important of the year. Everyone is going to watch the fireworks once the dark fills the air. In our village we have a magnificent display later on, but for now we have our own special at La Croix du Reh – Trianon au chocolat with sparkles!
