A mom cooking slow food in the fast world. I'm bringing back traditional recipes, and making new traditions.

Russian Fermented Mushrooms

A mushroom is one of the most mysterious of nature’s creations. It is a fungus that reproduces through the release of spores. It can nourish or be poisonous…but for now, let’s set aside its powers and focus on the ‘nourish’ part.

Homemade Kombucha

This fizzy, fermented health beverage takes a serious investment of time, but is worth it in the end when you can say you made your own kombucha.

Russian Baked Milk

For delicious creamy flavor, this Russian milk is baked until it has a caramel color and thicker consistency. A great dessert drink.
