We knew you wanted chicken,” Tolstoy said...


I recently read a story about the Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy.

In his later years Tolstoy was a vegetarian, and one day he invited his aunt home for dinner. She said she’d come but insisted, “I must have chicken!” Tolstoy paused at this condition, but then agreed to provide the bird. The lady duly came home, gup-shup happened, and then when they moved to the dining table, she found a live chicken on her chair. There was a carving knife alongside.

“We knew you wanted chicken,” Tolstoy said, “but none of us would kill it.”

Well, this was my inspiration for this weeks menu.

A little Russian in every sans the cream, well in some of the dishes ;)

We hope you will enjoy these dishes as much as we enjoy preparing them for you.

From everyone at Ezie and Emil... It's All about food
