A book that explores the many facets of Russian cooking, along with recipes that make it easier to cook these delicious dishes. Covers the by-gone days of the czars, Easter, the Baltic states, Ukraine, the Caucuses, and the Steppes of Central Asia. Hundreds of color photos and an Index. (Key Words: Russian Cooking, Russian Cookbooks, Recipes, Meats, Fruits, Salads, Desserts, Helen Papashvily).
Eastern European cooking is not easily found in restaurants. This book introduces you to not only Russian cooking but the cuisines of the Baltic countries and Asian countries of the former USSR. It is a good introduction to the varied menus of these disparate countries. I have tried two of the recipes, one from Russia and one from Latvia, and they were excellent. My only criticism so far is that there are not enough recipes in the book but I suspect the ones that are in it are winners.
