Happy Easter!!


Well in march during my latest Berlin weekend I did not resist to the temptation of acquiring another (yes! another) samovar. The girls at the Akazienstrasse cafe’ told me they had to give away a dozen of samovars, as their cafe’ was formerly known as a chai house…had I known this 10 months ago when they refurbished the place, I would have had exquisite and very welcome presents for my triestine friends!

This one is less shiny and missing the top kettle, poor thing, so it seemed quite obvious to me to buy an egg to keep him company. Yes, one of those perfect gyps eggs that you find in the marvellous bricolage stores in Berlin, it fits very well on top of the samovar, as if a cheeky goose would have passed by our window…

Samovar, wannabe Fabergé eggs, Berlin, there is a russian fil rouge…Frohe Ostern from A flat in Berlin! (even if we’re in Rome now- cooking and enjoying long chats with our friend Ch. from Geneva!)
