Bread is a staple of the "zakuski" (snack) spread at any Russian party where vodka toasts are taking place. "Vodka should be cold, glass should be tiny and there must be something salty, or rye bread, to follow,” says Helena Bayliss. However, the bread isn't always eaten: sometimes, it's sniffed instead.

As cold fronts sweep over #SouthAfrica's Western Cape, many families prepare to feast on waterblommetjiebredie, a heart-warming stew made from the waterblommetjies, or 'water flowers', that carpet the marshes of the Boland region during the winter months.
Only available between June through September (depending on the rainfall), waterblommetjies and their delicate taste complement the rich flavours of lamb or mutton and the astringency of wild sorrel. "Waterblommetjies are like a family member at my table," said cook and culinary historian Errieda Du Toit. "As soon as autumn turns to winter, I start planning my first bredie. I can't help it."

#FridayFeature! The Nasir al-Mulk Mosque in Shiraz, one of #Iran's oldest cities, is famously known as the 'Pink Mosque' because of the rosy glow cast when the light shines through the colourful stained glass windows and onto the beautiful Persian rugs and hand-painted tiles.
