I received these photos from my friend Joan in Ohio. After reading Who Is to Blame, these Yellow Springs gals put together a multi-course meal of traditional Russian food. An unbelievable feast! What I wouldn’t give to have been able to share that culinary evening with them!
→ Zakooski (appetizers)beet salad, baklazhan (an eggplant delicacy), sprats, pickles, bread
→ Soup – pickle soup, chicken broth with potatoes and carrots and pickle bits
→ Main course – kotletti (a ground meat pattie) and kartoffel (potatoes boiled, buttered)
→ Dessert – Russian tea cakes and tea
It was all washed down with wine and (of course!) vodka.
