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.
Dough is been fermented
A mandatory ingredient for our Christmas table is dough, which we prepare by ourselves.
Ingredients for salad Olivie
I just love traditional Russian Olivie salads, they are quite easy to prepare.
Boiled carrots and potatoes for Olivie Salad
Yup, one of the rare times you boil whole carrots.
Might be a cool addition to our Peace of Life series.
We are going to make a base for pizza using this rolling pin.
