Okay, so here is a question:
What is a zakuska? (zuh-KOOS-kuh)
Tick tock tick tock tick tock….
an hors d’oeuvre!
This Russian word for a snack, zakuska, entered the lexicon in the mid 1880’s as a derivative of kusát meaning “to bite.”
So you can invite all your guests for a little zakuska and drinks, the next time they come over.
(Now why is it that both words for something to eat with a drink are from a different language?)
Here’s a quick pic my friend Judy snapped of the bean dip she made recently for a birthday celebration. A great zakuska!
Please share with me your pictures of dishes you make from the recipes here – I’d be delighted to publish!
