What can you make with an intense amount of strawberries? Travel to a tranquil country home in Azerbaijan, where Aziza Ramikhanova and her husband prepare delicious foods on open fires and plant the season’s crops in their large garden. On the menu today: Fresh strawberry jam and cake.
Puppies frolic in the yard, pestering the cat and a rabbit. Cake and tea will bring the grandparents together at the table after the work is done. There will be more than a few bottles of strawberry jam on their shelf, too.
The popular Country Life Vlog (Kənd Həyatı) YouTube channel captures the bucolic rhythms in Azerbaijan’s mountainous Qusar District. The wordless videos are filmed by Ramikhanova’s son Amiraslan, a professional chef who returned home to his parents when his restaurant was forced to close during the pandemic.
