    "A¯Classic Russian Cooking is a book that I highly recommend. Joyce Toomre has done a marvelous job of translating this valuable and fascinating source book. It’s the Fanny Farmer and Isabella Beeton of Russia’s 19th century." —Julia Child, Food Arts

    "This is a delicious book, and Indiana University Press has served it up beautifully." —Russian Review

    "... should become as much of a classic as the Russian original... dazzling and admirable expedition into Russia’s kitchens and cuisine."A —Slavic Review

    "It gives a delightful and fascinating picture of the foods of pre-Communist Russia." —The Christian Science Monitor

    First published in 1861, this "bible" of Russian homemakers offered not only a compendium of recipes, but also instructions about such matters as setting up a kitchen, managing servants, shopping, and proper winter storage. Joyce Toomre has superbly translated and annotated over one thousand of the recipes and has written a thorough and fascinating introduction which discusses the history of Russian cuisine and summarizes Molokhovets’ advice on household management. A treasure trove for culinary historians, serious cooks and cookbook readers, and scholars of Russian history and culture.
