Gismonda, by Mucha

This card came to me from Dale in California. The artist is the well-known Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) from what is now Czech Republic.

Mucha is not an artist that I really admire the work of, but my mother says that when she was a girl she had many of his pictures pinned on the walls of her bedroom, and that he was quite popular…

Grechka Soup - Russian Buckwheat Soup (and a bit about Japanese Soba)

The fourth try (as for 3rd, pls. see Apple Pandowdy), the recipe of which from St Petersburg, is a Russian dish again. The simple but nutritious buckwheat soup is ideal for winter, so I gave it a try on a chilly, rainy Sunday in late autumn. 673 more words
