When I came upon this article in Food and Wine about an outdoor feast in Russia, it immediately brought to mind all the stories my younger brother has told me about his time there. Michael has traveled to lots of cool places (Siberia, Georgia, Mongolia, Africa, etc) but has never once taken a photo, preferring to "remain in the moment instead" he claims. I rely on his descriptions but these photos match perfectly a garden feast he once described to me after he spent a summer in Russia living with farmers and traveling through the countryside. Now I really want to visit! Check out the full article in Food and Wine. The recipes look amazing!
