The definitive compilation of Russia's delicious culinary history-now revised and updated with a new introduction by the author
Alongside the splendors of tsarist Russia-its art, architecture, and literature-is its cuisine, a marvelous, little-known part of Russian heritage. Based on favorite family recipes and passed down through generations, collected by the author from the private collections of the old Russian emigre community of New York City, The Russian Heritage Cookbook represents the restoration of an entire culinary heritage-which previously existed only in the memories of the cooks themselves, or in the form of yellowing scraps of paper. Most Americans have experienced only a few classic Russian dishes: Chicken Kiev, Beef Stroganoff, Borscht, and a few others. Now revised with 26 new recipes, The Russian Heritage Cookbook brings together recipes for these classic dishes along with hundreds of recipes for the sumptuous meals that have delighted generations.
Lynn Visson, scholar, interpreter, and writer, is the author of The Moscow Gourmet, Wedded Strangers: The Challenges of Russian-American Marriages, and The Art of Uzbek Cooking. She lives in New York City.
