Last night my friends from Ukraine impressed me with “szuba” (shooba) – “herring under a fur coat” :) and karp which they made for New Year. Tatiana and Michail made everything like Tatiana’s mother has been doing over the years. It was so delicious…
They used salted herring, onion, boiled carrots, potatoes, beets and mayonnaise. A lot of work!
