4 favourite dishes

a tough one... I devour what my wife cooks, what my mother cooks, what my father cooks, what my brother cooks, what my mother-in-law cooks, what my father-in-law cooks, what both my grandmothers cook... and also what I cook... so it will be a bit of a random selection...

  2. Shashlik (the way my father in law makes it in the forest...)
  3. Homemade berry jam (made by my wife or mother-in-law... better if you picked the berries...)
