I suspect you're asking for tips for how to even begin editing this in something like LightRoom.

Just loading it up it appears as almost a solid black image,

but with just the adjustments here shown on the right in Lightroom everything is visible.

I adjusted exposure all the way to +5, used the White Balance eye dropper tool on the sour cream, and then tweaked the levels of highlights, shadows, whites and blacks.

If I wanted to keep this photo or even publish it I would follow up with noise reduction, possibly some sharpening, and maybe tweak the color temp some to get a warmer feel.
