Borscht cravings

I spent the first 3 and a half months of 2005 in New York. While I was there I spent a lot of time with Friends from Fifteeth Street Meeting.

Fifteenth street is very close to an area of New York with a lot of eastern european people and more importantly a restaurant called Little Poland, which is very popular with members and attenders of 15th St.

Anyways, to cut a long story short, I spent a lot of time in Little Poland slurping borscht and munching peroggi - and that's to say nothing of the outrageously yummy apple cake.

Ever since I have had cravings for borscht, which I put to an end to day when I went to the market and found a lot of beetroot. I stocked up and tonight I made my very own borscht.


My cravings are satisfied (I'm not pregnant, honest).

Anyway, in the style of Paul Turner, and especially for Lorcan, Ryan and Amanda (who I ate just far tooo much borscht with), I thought I'd post the photos :)

Borscht for two

Hey! I know that quaint kitchen table. So glad you bought fresh bread to go with the borscht.

Ah what a joy on a rainy day in New York!!! I just returned from three days of driving in the rain, in Lancaster PA, we were driving through some rather scary flooding, roads became fast moving streams... and the thought of some lovely borsht... well, I might take meself off to little Poland, and have a bowl and remember warm and dear times.
All the best

Mmmmmm....spinach soup. I like that too, maybe that can be next week's almighty cullinary adventure :)

Nice to see you around Amanda! I hope things are going well for you in Cambridge.
