A Bowl of Red

"Serbian Goulash is a welcome treat after a lengthy shooting session in the field. Lay down that heavy camera bag and warm up to a bowl of red."

Venice Beach with its colorful atmosphere and diverse culture has been the subject of many photo shoots and the destination of photography class and camera club field trips. Not so well known is the fact it also is the home and birthplace of Serbian Goulash. An original recipe passed on by a Bohemian denizen of Venice of the early sixties and selfishly guarded for thirty years is finally made public. Enjoy!
