    “Caponata”, “Roasted quails in a Madiran wine sauce”, “Smooth celeriac purée with nutmeg”, “Rice pudding with preserved fruit”, all make up a mouth-watering menu, but not, as you might expect, from the latest trendy restaurant.

As planned, the russian Progress spacecraft carried the meals yesterday.
