Is any trip to the Russian grocery store complete without a big bag of unlabeled sunflower seeds? I don't think so.

This is a Russian Napoleon cake in progress. The final layer of pastry cream gets spread over the top and sides, and then it gets covered in crushed toasted pastry crumbs.

It's for tomorrow's Odessa-themed supper club. saltandpomegranates.com/Odessa-dinner

She imparted to me an appreciation of good food cooked well, and Sunday's menu reflects her influence on my culinary style.
On June 12th, Salt & Pomegranates will present a dinner inspired by the Ukrainian city of Odessa. An international port, Odessa has historically attracted a lively mix of international characters from Greece, Armenia, Georgia, and Turkey, among others.
