Cooking success

Two more Georgian recipes to do again:

Salmon Buglama, a stew with coriander and lemon
Soko Arazhanit, mushrooms in cream.

The latter was the more technically taxing, in fact. My recipe book demands that the herby ingredients be tied into cheescloth, which is an alien concept this side of the Atlantic. So, on Anne's suggestion, I unstapled and emptied a couple of tea bags, stuffed the herbs in instead, and stapled them shut again with the desk stapler from our study. It seemed to work OK.

And our visitors from Manchester seemed satisfied.

Cheesecloth is fine muslin and easy enough to get hold of in fabric shops, for future reference.

Is there any chance of the recipes?

just love the image of someone carefully and surgically opening a tea bag, removing the leaves, replacing with herbs and stapling them back.
Matches my day early this year pouring 30yr+ old brandy thru a sieve
