My favorite food image of late, provided by Saveur. This beautiful woman proudly sells freshly butchered whole animals and smaller cuts, during a Moscow city market, representing a completely different Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union. Under communist rule, food was rationed to minimalistic canned, frozen or pickled items.
The brief article, written by Sharon Hudgins, speaks of Russia's new found freedom. Open air markets now burst with a variety of locally produced goods, demonstrating the power of politics and it's close relationship to food and societal wealth.
I love her apron!
