Learning How to Make Borsch

On Saturday, Beth and I were picked up by our friends Andrew and Ira, and taken to Andrew's childhood home to meet his mother.  There his mother taught us how to make delicious Russian food.

Andrew drove us outside of Moscow to his hometown of 60,000 residents.  It was close to Moscow, but just far enough away that everything felt so much more calm and peaceful.  When we arrived, we only expected Andrew's mother to teach us how to make borsch-- but she had prepared an entire feast!

Olivie Salad (Mayo, carrots, peas, ham, boiled eggs, cucumbers, etc.)

Fish and beet salad

All of the food was incredible, and we look forward to making some of these dishes soon.
