This picture was taken in New Orleans last September when my buddies took me to try the local specialty: beignet.
Yes, we have had rather a lot to drink when I tried them; you see, I had already discovered that New Orleans is a city where it is very difficult to stay sober.
Still, the first bite tasted vaguely familiar.
I took another bite: it did taste of my childhood.
Is it possible?
Yes it is. We make this pastry in Bulgaria (and I’ve asked: Greeks, Turkish people and Albanians know it as well) and call it ‘mekitzi’.…
