GRANDMAS ARE THE BEST COOKS!!! - Inara Runtule, 68 years old / Silke Krèjumà - Herring with Potatoes and Cottage Cheese. INGREDIENTS for 4 people: 4 salted herring fillets, 2 large boiling potatoes, peeled, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced, 2 cups sour cream, 11⁄2 cups kefir (kefir works best here, as greek yogurt is too thick), 2 sprigs fresh dill, chopped, 1 cupcottagecheese(15ounces), Salt and pepper - RECIPE : 1- Soak the herring fillets in water for at least 2 hours, changing the water several times. (This process is used to wash the salt from the herring. If you want to give the herring a sweeter taste, use milk instead of water. You can also add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar to the water to cut the sharp- ness of the herring.) Remove the fil- lets from the water and rinse // 2 - Boil the potatoes until they are cooked to your desired tenderness. Cut each into 8 slices // 3 - Meanwhile, fill a bowl with the vinegar and the sliced onion. Pour enough hot water over the top to cover the onion, and let it marinate for about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside // 4- Remove the skin and pin bones from the herring fillets. Cut the fillets into 1-inch pieces and lay them on aplate. Top the chunks of herring with the marinated onion to cover the fish completely // 5 - Combine the sour cream and 1 cup of the kefir in a medium bowl, stirring until well blended. Pour the cream over the fish and onion. Sprinkle with half of the chopped dill and refriger- ate for at least 1 hour // 6 - In a separate bowl, mix the cottage cheese with the remaining 1⁄2 cup kefir and the remaining chopped dill. Season with salt and pepper. (This cream will be used to season the potatoes in the end.) // 7 - Now that everything is ready, plate the dish: Place the herring and the potatoes on the same dish, seasoning the fish with some cream from its own marinade and the pota- toes with the cottage cheese mixture. Serve with white wine or iced beer.

This month on National Geographic Magazine @natgeo - Whenever I meet people on my travels, I ask the same question: Can I see what’s in your medicine cabinet? My new project HOME PHARMA is the result of my curiosity. Some people are shy; others proud to do so. Sometime, the medicines can reveal who the people are. Their desires, their wants, their diseases. It’s very intimate. What can our medicines say about us? For one, how affluent we are. Cabinets in developed countries tend to overflow with pharmaceuticals. People in less developed countries collect medications more slowly or not at all./// HOME PHARMA IS PART OF A MULTI MEDIA PROJECT CALLED "HAPPY PILLS" BY @paolowoods, @gabrielegalimbertiphoto, @arnaudrobert and @edoardo_delille #happypills #pills #pharma #bigpharma #health

From my project FATHERS /// Las Vegas, Nevada. USA - James Wade (36) with his children, Dejah (15), Tyler (12) and Haden (8). James was born and raised in Las Vegas. He met his wife almost 20 years ago and they had their first child when they were only 20. Then they had another two children. James has a great passion for guns and rifles and he loves to go to shooting ranges with his family. Every weekend, though, if the weather is good, James brings his children to shoot in the desert. They have 6 guns and 3 rifles. They put targets like cans, bottles and pieces of wood on top of rocks and then they all shoot at the them. They also often have shooting contests. #guns #shoot #shooting #rifle #rifles #gun #shotgun #nevada #lasvegas #usa

View the different cabinets’ contents, and cultures start to take shape. In Paris and New York, I saw large numbers of antidepressants and antianxiety pills. African cabinets had drugs from China, often unlabeled. But 90% all the people I photographed had something in common: they were not sick /// Nicole, 25, her mother Sonia 60 and her grandmother 85, in the apartment they share with Nala, the dog, in Los Martires neighborhood of Bogota, Colombia.

Memories from Tanzania - Three young Maasai photographed near Arusha, Tanzania - Traditional Maasai lifestyle centers around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man's wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common. The cattle live inside the Maasai village together with all the people. Every morning the children are in charge of bringing the cattles outside of the vollage and then to bring them back inside before the sunset. #tanzania #masaai #arusha #cuttle
