Christmas Cooking Photo Session in The Kitchen - Olivie salads, Pirozhki and of course Pizza

That time of the year have come and for the rare time this year I was actually operating with camera in our kitchen - in today's special Christmas menu - our "traditional Georgian Christmas" table - salad Olivie, pirozhki and of course that tasty pizza. 

It was that time of the year when again I installed a tripod, put a telephoto lens and decided to shoot macro's. 

Christmas time during our expat time in Georgia have always marked two essential things to do - first to visit annul Christmas charity fair and  second, on Christmas eve to cook something cool. Like we have baked gingerbreads, pirozhki and of course pizzas
