Smoked salmon with lemon and dill dressing has never failed! Bon appetit!
Summer fair on the plate!
On the hot summer day there is nothing as good and refreshing as OKROSHKA – type of Russian cold soup: mixture of chopped fresh veggies, eggs and new potatoes, lots of fresh herbs and of course KVAS traditional russian drink. All served with crème fraîche or greek yoghurt . Yummy!
On a cold rainy day like today my ultimate comfort food will always be Russian Borsch. Full of vitamins from every winter vegetable available, of a great colour and , I cannot describe, of a wonderful flavour, it is absolutely one of Must try!
The greatest thing about Borsch is that it gets better on the next and following day. Served with or without dollop of creme fraiche and good chunk of proper bread, it can be a starter or a light meal on it’s own.
Of course, there are many recipes depending on the region and country ( there is a Ukranian, Polish etc…) , everyone has their own secret. I don’t believe that there is such a thing as a Classic Borscht, it varies so much. But what I do know , that the one we serve here has never fail to surprise and impress our guests.

Just a few pictures from the vegetarian cooking class on the 24th of February, which was great fun with Jayne and Olivia.
Our menu was:
Cherry tomatoes and Asparagus Clafoutis
We also made Cherry tomatoes and Basil Clafoutis ( just because we could! 🙂
Mushrooms Fete on the plate: mushrooms cooked 3 ways, served with potato wedges and roasted tomatoes
And everybody’s favourite: Chocolate Fondant!
The most exciting thing about running bed and breakfast with an evening meal for me is that I don’t know what I will be cooking in the evening until I am actually shopping, and menu can become a huge surprise and more huge success.
And here it is : a huge success of yesterday’s night .
