November. Pühajärve #visitestonia #Eesti100 #estonia #pühajärve

November has its own beauty. It neither  golden autumn nor  white and clean winter. November is foggy, grey, rainy and brown…

November 2nd is All Souls’ Day and November is All Souls Months. We believe that there is a period when the souls of the dead are moving around and visiting their former homes, Now is the time to light the candle and put it on the window. Show the way to the souls and commemorate deceased loved ones.

Reading and movie suggestion:
best of all will convey the mood of November in Estonia book by Andrus Kivirähk ” Rehepapp”, a bestseller of the last twenty years. Rehepapp captures the essential of the Estonian soul. The book is quite blatant parody, but like all good parody it has a grain of truth in it.  Look at movie trailer.

Pühajärv (“Holy lake”) is a lake in Estonia, near the town of Otepää.
There are many lakes with the name Pühajärv (‘Holy Lake’) in Estonia. The one located in the Otepää Upland is the most famous of them. The picturesque coastline and five islands of Lake Pühajärv make it the biggest and most beautiful lake in the Otepää region.

In this week’s episode of Worth-Your-While-Wednesdays, I present to you an excellent food blog. Eesti Toit, or ‘Estonian Cuisine’ is a blog run by the lovely Ruta and I highly recommend you check it out!

I came across Ruta’s blog in early autumn, when I needed to use up some leftover quark in the fridge. A big ‘food thing’ of mine is to have a mental checklist of anything in the fridge that may need using up. Not only does this reduce waste (for financial and environmental yays), but I have found it to be an excellent way to push me into expanding my recipe repertoire. Indeed, it was as I manically typed ‘quark baking’ into google, foodgawker, and pinterest (you name it, and I was searching on it), that a photo of ‘Berry Cake by Siiri’ caught my *very picky* eye. And who can blame me when Ruta’s food photography…
