In this episode we discover the absolute joy that is Medovik, or Russian Honey Cake: a towering layer cookie-cake held together with sweet cream filling. It won over the heart of a Russian Empress, and we can only hope it will win over your heart too, dear listener!
Unrelated to honey cake, I want to apologize in advance that during this episode Jules sounds like she is recording from the bottom of a very deep well, or perhaps from an adjacent room while sitting in a bathtub. We assure you neither was the case. We are working to fix this issue for next episode.
