“Cooking Together” | After a photo in Moscow Times

Cooking Together: after a photo in Moscow Times

I follow artists and writers from Russia and Ukraine. Sometimes I painstakingly translate all the comments on their posts.

It’s introduced me to many new people and worlds I couldn’t have imagined.

This pic is from an article about a writer who devoted herself to cooking from a well-known Soviet cookery book, with help from her late grandmother.

I loved the colours in the photo – and I liked the relationship.

The writer no longer lives in Russia but Australia, and writes eloquent posts about the immigrant experience.

The English-language @moscowtimes.ru is not smiled on by the Kremlin and relies on donations. (Hint, hint.)
