Just a rehearsal for Christmas dinner.
As usual the most of the food on the table will be from traditional Russian cuisine.
Here is one of the favourites : Herring under a Fur Coat
You might raise your brows: under a fur coat?
That’s right, it is a literal translation of the name. Sometimes we call it SHUBA , which is the word for a fur coat in Russian. And of cause there is no fur on a plate. It is simply diced smoked or cured herring filets dressed 🙂 with root vegetables, egg and mayonnaise, one of those dishes that you either love or hate. Though I can definitely say that I don’t know any Russian who does not like it.
It’s miserably cold and wet outside today: TIME FOR COMFORT FOOD!
Egg and Bacon! Just what was needed!
It has become somewhat traditional starter at La Croix du Reh: Asparagus and Cherry tomatoes Clafoutis!
And the Star of the night is…
Here is another house recipe creation: White chocolate Smart Smarties Cake , that was served this evening for dessert at La Croix du Reh.
Our Dutch visitors absolutely loved it!
Tonight we are going to see our good friends and I’ve volunteered to make a dessert.
Of course another cake!
This time it is a home recipe and I call it Galya’s Rafaello cake. That’s right, it tastes exatcly like Rafaello chocolates .

Thursday night we’ve had a birthday party for a very charming French family. And the cake was a really big hit!
One more very chocolaty chocolate cake!
And would you believe it, no oven needed!
