For every Summer & Winter Olympics my daughter has a party for Opening Ceremonies themed to the host country, so this time was Russian food

Caviar Appetizers


White Russians (yes, I know they aren't actually Russian)


Borst soup, Clockwise from top Knish, Golubtsy, Beef Stroganov served on Steak Fries, Pelmini, & Olivyer Salad


Russian Lemon Pie & Bird's Milk Cake

You’re too much Mike and it’s rubbing off on your family, maybe a little on me too.I found plenny recipes for the bird’s milk cake ( Ptichye Moloko ) Most take about 1/2 hr. prep time and claim it’s not as complicated as the finished cake looks. There were variations on the recipe but all the ingredients are readily available. I’m anxious to try this one.
Mahalo.

Btw,”Moloko” sounds Hawaiian (tiki cake?) but it is not and it means mousse.

ATP - we always have a good time

Dave, mine wasn't too difficult, I used a combination of several recipes. I started with a cheating sponge cake - 1 package yellow cake mix and 1 angel food cake mix mixed together in a gallon food storage bag. Take 1 1/2 cups of this cake mix and 1 cup of water, mix and bake @350 for about 30 min. (they say this mixture is good for single serve microwave cake - 3 tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, and 1 mug or bowl. 321 cake). Cream base called for 1 cup of milk heated below boiling and 2 packs of unflavored gelatin dissolved in. Mix together 16 oz thawed cool whip and 16 oz sour cream and add milk/gelatin mixture. Pour over sponge cake, smooth out and refrigerate. Then I covered it with a chocolate ganache made of chocolate chips and cream. I was worried about the gelatin and milk, sounded pretty gross. But it tasted really good!

Had dinner at the Tonga Hut Palm Springs on Saturday, you should go as soon as you get a chance. I ordered Chef Sherman Chan's Kalua Pork - I expected shredded pork as it is usually served, but was surprised to get a couple of large chunks instead. It was delicious, tender and juicy with just enough sweetness in the glaze and a hint of Chinese Five Spice. I decided to try an "inspired" version. I took a 4 pound pork loin and cut it into 8 portions. I dropped it in the Crock Pot on low for 10 hours with a bottle of Spicy Hawaiian Mango marinade. Then I carefully pulled the braised chunks out and placed them on a cookie sheet. I sprinkled a little Five Spice on and brushed them with bottled Honey Teriyaki, stuck them in a 350 oven until the glaze started to caramelize (about 10-15 minutes) and then garnished them with a little toasted sesame seed.


Turned out excellent (not as good as the Tonga Hut of course ) Elegant and very easy, total hand-on time was probably only 15 minute, a nice addition to the Tiki Food repertoire

Atp, I’m almost too stuffed to type.
Ribeye’s,creamed spinach, french baguette washed down with Cab.For dessert I baked a heart shaped yellow cake. I needed two “hearts and only had one pan so I baked em one at a time. The plan was to “fuse” them together sorta tattoo like. Unfortunately the best laid plans..... The final result was something that looks like someone lying on the beach with their butt in the air. Oh well.. I hope a new cocktail I’m trying for the 1rst time works out mo betta. Cranberry juice, Passionfruit syrup,Grand Marnier in a flute topped off with Champagne. Sounds promising- gonna post on “what are you drinking... if it’s any good.
Happy valentines to you and Nancy!
Here’s a pic of the “cake”
