Herring Under Fur Coat Salad "Селедка под шубой"

It’s hard to know what to make of this dish at first glance. From a distance, its vaguely cake like appearance often leads it to be mistaken for a dessert, when it is actually a type of salad. In fact, this dish, which consists of one layer of salted herring, vegetables and eggs, with a topmost coating of mayonnaise and grated beets lending a rich purple color, is probably the most popular of all Russian salads. It is found on nearly every New Year’s table, and often makes an appearance at birthdays and other holidays as well. I been eating this salad as long I can remember. My mom always made it for us. It became my favorite salad since I can remember.

"Tres Leches Cake"

 Just in time for the holidays.This is a part dry, part moist Mexican cake made with three types of milk. It is a sweet and delicious treat! The three milks in the soaking sauce for Tres Leches are sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and heavy cream. The heavy cream is also whipped up to use as the topping. Due to the rich ingredients and that it is soaked in a creamy syrup, Tres Leches Cake is extremely dense and moist, almost like a custard. I made it with my own decoration:)

"French Persimmon Tart"


So here’s my first attempt at making persimmon puff pastry tart. It turned out to be so simple and delicious. I  was surprised how tasty cooked persimmons turned out. All you need is a tiny bit of sugar  and butter, and ta-da - a sweet, rather creamy tart. No need to even peel the fruit. This tart has a lovely airy buttery crust and the ripe persimmons are currently in season so it was a great way to enjoy them. You can enjoy this persimmon tart–alone, with whipped cream, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Chanterelle Mushrooms Recipe "Лисички"

When chanterelle season is in full swing, we eat like queens. Their apricot-like aroma is augmented by a subtle, peppery flavor that offers a richness prized by chefs everywhere. Meaty and chewy, chanterelles must be cooked for their full flavor to truly shine. These golden beauties work well in butter and oil. Plucked from the forest floor, chanterelle mushrooms provide a true taste of the local landscape — the conifer forests of the Pacific Northwest. Chanterelles are relatively high in vitamin C,  very high in potassium and among the richest sources of vitamin D known, with ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) as high as 2500 IU/100 grams fresh weight.
