Here is a brief post for May’s In My Kitchen. May has been a busy and rather difficult month for us, and between visits to Denmark and issues with the remodelling project, I’ve hardly time to sit down at the computer and submit my offering to the lovely Celia who organises In My Kitchen. I know this post is late but I thought it better that than never.
So here is a single item that I’ll share with you.
This treasure is from my late mother-in-law. It’s mid-1800s earthenware from Russia, before it was the USSR, and there are three bowls in the set. The largest might meet the requirements of a family-sized salad bowl, the smallest holding about 500ml, and the middle one midway between those two. It’s fragile, so no putting this one in the dishwasher. I used it tonight to serve steamed new potatoes, just as mother-in-law would have done at this time of the year.
In memory of her, I’d like to share her favourite serving bowl, given to her by her mother, who received it from her mother, and now it’s mine.
