Slavic Spread


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.
