I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
How gorgeous is this picture? I have stove envy. A big ol’ part of me longs to me a Mamma in charge of this beauty, creating with it in my kitchen, knowing it inside out.
According to Darra Goldstein’s latest book on Russian cuisine (where this pic comes from), there’s a high ledge that I could cuddle up on in winter, it’d transform into a sauna, and of course, I could keep all my ferments warm as it cooled.
And I like her outfit too :-)
