More to be shared later on, and now I'd like to start with some photos from a MUSEUM OF PASTILA in the town of Kolomna that is ab. 100km drive from Moscow.
purée, since the 18th century, the times of a Russian empress, Catherine the Great.
Old perfume vials, fancyworks and accessories, they were a part of someone's daily routine..!
... I really think of being back for more pastila! In spite of the fact that we were leaving hands full of paper bags filled with old style gift boxes, so much left untasted. For example, this pink pastila in a paunchy jar (below) flavoured with damascus rose!
... Unfortunatelly, it seems they don't ship to other countries, except... there is a shop in England! Those of us living far from pastila-covered areas; let's simply have a closer look at the sweets at their museum store in Russia, and... plan a trip, why not? Believe me, it is worth the miles!;STAY TUNED! ; And a Happy Easter to everyone who's celebrating❣
