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 has become somewhat traditional starter at La Croix du Reh: Asparagus and Cherry tomatoes Clafoutis!
What do you mean ” what’s up”? It’s C H R I S T M A S!
There is no end to Nature’s generosity, when you take care of it.
These CEPS ( Porcini mushrooms) are this morning’s present from our own park!
Il n’y a pas fin à la générosité de la nature, quand vous prendre soin d’elle.
Ces CEPS (champignons porcini) sont le cadeau de ce matin de notre parc!
The figs are back on the menu! Honey grilled figs with Parma ham and spiced cream cheese. Bon appetite!
Smoked salmon with lemon and dill dressing has never failed! Bon appetit!
Sunshine salad: watermelon and Feta! 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!
