Smoked Trout Blini

Gamze but Fancy | Fun entertaining recipes

Sarah Kiryshin Cooks hosted a garden party. 

Here’s what she had to say and her yummy recipes! 

The guests of honour at my garden party were Gamze Salami, Terrine, Smoked Chicken and Smoked Trout. 

But I couldn’t stop there! I decided to compliment the delicious produce at my disposal with some fun toppings and transform my already wonderful food into some wholesome, party favourites.

Check out the videos on Instagram<link>. The reviews are in – Gamze tastes incredible even with a little extra. I tried everything from piping on whipped feta to making up my own, original creations! Recipes below.
