Product Description

An unparalleled collection of hundreds of delicious, authentic recipes gathered from private collections -- completely revised and back in print.

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. The Russian Heritage Cookbook brings together the recipes for these classic dishes, along with hundreds of recipes for the sumptuous meals that have delighted generations.

"Much more than a collection of recipes, it is also a serious study of the history of food in Russia and a tribute, name by name, to the best Russian cooks." -- The Chicago Tribune

Lynn Visson, scholar, interpreter, and writer, has published many books, including The Moscow Gourmet, Wedded Strangers: The Challenges of Russian American Marriages, and The Art of Uzbek Cooking.
