Shashleek

I’ve found some funny Russian pictures on the internet over the years.  I thought I’d start posting some of them.  You can see an eye-full on my earlier post about herring.

In Russia, cooking shashleek (what Americans call shish-ka-bob) over an open fire in the forest is an important part of the culture; it is a special and highly-valued event.  Russians love to go on cookouts, just as Americans love to cook bar-b-que on a grill.

Here is a classic example of cooking shashleek at one of our cookouts at Elama last year. Notice the marinated meat on the skewers over the hot coals. Very tasty.

But, sometimes the weather doesn’t allow for cook-outs. It’s Russia after all, and it can get cold outside. So what is an enterprising Russian to do?

Well, look what I found on the web:

Now THAT is someone who loves his shashleek.

And I’ll bet the house smelled great.
