"The cuisines of Russia are as various as its lands and its peoples. Not all Russians eat borshch, kasha and beef Stroganov; in the Baltic regions there is a strong Scandinavian influence, while in the far eastern states the falvor is distinctly Oriental. Barbara Norman has studied for years the food and cooking of the Soviet Union, taken the best of each region and presented it in the simple but elegant manner that has made cooking from her 'Spanish Cookbook' such a joy. One hundred eighty-five delicious Russian dishes, from appetizers (Zakusky) through desserts. Serve with your vodka some tiny, delectable Pirozhky, Sturgeon in Aspicor Georgian Cornbread. Choose from Belorussian Borshch or six others, four kinds of Shchi (hot or cold), twelve ways with Shashlik. Go on to Azerbaid zhani Dill Pilaf, Beef Bitky, Caucasian Stuffed Vine Leaves or Chicken Sobko. Sample the sauces and finish off your meal with Vatrushka, Mazurka or Smetanik, with perhaps a bit of Halva afterward. And at Eastertime take a flower pot and make a rich Paskha. (Be sure your Paskha is dry!) This charmingand coorful book will introduce you to the culinary history of all the Rus sias, guide you in the preparation of authentic muscovite meals, an show you how the Russians eat -- often, long and well!" - from the dustjacket.
