Delish Delissime

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!

Just a little buffet

Just a little buffet

 

 

 

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.
