    Wow! Sounds scrumptious! Is your chocolate covered cheese dessert a version of pashka?

    Not sure....they were roundish with a dark chocolate covering and a farm cheese and raisin filling. About 1 1/2"-2" in diameter.

    beluga, wasabi, ostera, Russian red, whitefish) iced down in a punchbowl. sour cream and porcini as alternative

    Black Trumpet dumplings in a veg. Borscht
    served in Irish Coffee mugs

    Pierogis...potato, white truffle oil (forgot about this application of wto)

    Goat cheese tarts...forgot name sorry flaky pastry and creamy goat cheese filling

    Selection of smoked fish (from Russian store)
    breads, fresh butter

    Radishes with mustard butter piped on

    Russian chocolates, the chocolate covered cheese with white raisins

    Babas in Rum syrup (yup these are Russian too),floating in a large glass vase

    Meragines...I cheated and bought at the grocery

    Incredible iced vodka
