A big thank you to all my followers who played the “what is this” game with me on my facebook page these past 3 weeks. And congratulations to Veronique who is the winner of this Kyrgyz game session.
Central Asia is really different from Europe…
REALLY different… but it’s exactly the reason why we want to go there.
“Trop” in Kyrgyz, “Retka” in Russian and this is a green radish. And I’ve tried it and it indeed tastes like radish, a bit spicy but less spicy than the classical red one we used to find in our gardens.
“Kurut”: Small pieces of cheese. Goat cheese or cow cheese, don’t follow the shapes or the smell, just ask by trying this :”Salam, is this “moo” or “Baa”?” (Yes, you’ll be ridiculous but it works perfectly)
