This classic cookbook offers so much more than a collection of recipes-it captures the spirit of the Russian people and their cuisine. From zavtrak (breakfast) to uzhin (dinner), Russians love to eat heartily. Originally published in 1947, The Best of Russian Cooking is a treasured classic that combines authentic Russian recipes with culinary tips and invaluable cultural insights. This expanded edition features a concise list of menu terms, sections on Russian table traditions and mealtimes, and a guide to special cooking utensils. A survey of the tastiest Russian cuisine, this book includes 300 recipes for popular dishes such as beef stroganoff and borscht, as well as many lesser-known dishes which are daily fare in Russia-kotleti (meatballs), piroshki (dumplings with meat or vegetables) and tvorojniki (cottage cheese cakes).
