Posted Leave a commentPosted in By Country, Eastern European, Estonia, Main dishes, Potatoes, Recipes, Side dishes, vegan, Vegetable, Vegetarian

Estonia is located in Northern Europe just across from Finland. I mention this because their foods are both quite hearty and similar. This is also fairly reminiscent Kasha Varnishka, a classic Jewish dish of kasha and bow tie noodles, but moister. As usual, I searched YouTube for authentic videos. Interestingly, this was only the second […]

D is for Denmark, home of the Smørrebrød. I have to say, these open-face sandwiches are GORGEOUS to look at! We were all marveling at their beauty and didn’t really want to eat them as they were so pretty…but ultimately, we did. They were tasty too. I made 4 different kinds at once because I […]
