Lesley Chamberlain lived in Soviet Russia in 197879 and recorded her experiences in the form of two hundred recipes interwoven with details of Russian culture and history and her own practical advice. From blini to cabbage soup, and caviar eggs to "Russian salad, " she reveals the continuity of Russian life, despite political repression, in which the bourgeois cooking of the nineteenth century coexisted with old dishes dictated by the church calendar and new inventions to "make do" with the frequent shortages of vital ingredients under the Soviets. First published in 1982, this fine collection of recipes and entertaining literary quotations has become a classic introduction to the rich culinary history of the region. This new Bison Books edition contains period illustrations and a new introduction by the author.

In this third installment the author expounds on the principles of organic chemistry as it relates to food science, interwoven with more than 50 detailed recipes, most of which have accompanying online videos. This unusual book fills a niche that is sorely missing in the literature. Namely, how specific flavors are produced by chemical reactions during cooking and how those reactions can be manipulated to improve results. There are diagrams, tables and explanations covering over 25 different topics. If you have ever wondered about such things as what the exact differences are between types of onions, or what bay leaves actually do at the chemical level, or what makes foods a certain color and what that color indicates, or why fresh tomatoes are sometimes combined with pureed tomatoes in sauces, or the science of how flambeing changes the flavor profile of a dish, or why stocks have to be simmered at a specific temperature for optimum results, and many other such questions, here are the scientifically accurate answers presented in clear language. The text is also sprinkled with tidbits of food history and a humorous take on life in restaurant kitchens. Perhaps even more valuable for chefs and serious cooks, the author introduces a never before seen method for producing your own tertiary flavorings, which are those psychologically tantalizing additives that are the trade secrets of commercial food manufacturers. Only instead of using bottles of chemicals, here this is accomplished using only natural foods, ordinary kitchen equipment and a brilliant novel technique. There is also an extensive glossary of terms relating to beers and wines at the back of the book. If you are an aspiring chef, you absolutely need this book. Understanding food chemistry has never been more important than in this age of molecular gastronomy. This isn't just dry theory. You will be able to make use of these methods in any commercial or home kitchen immediately."

Beyond the North Wind explores the true heart of Russian food, a cuisine that celebrates whole grains, preserved and fermented foods, and straightforward but robust flavors. Recipes for a dazzling array of pickles and preserves, infused vodkas, homemade dairy products such as farmers cheese and cultured butter, puff pastry hand pies stuffed with mushrooms and fish, and seasonal vegetable soups showcase Russian foods that are organic and honest--many of them old dishes that feel new again in their elegant minimalism. Despite the country's harsh climate, this surprisingly sophisticated cuisine has an incredible depth of flavor to offer in dishes like Braised Cod with Horseradish, Roast Lamb with Kasha, Black Currant Cheesecake, and so many more. This home-style cookbook with a strong sense of place and evocative storytelling brings to life a rarely seen portrait of Russia, its people, and its palate--with 100 recipes, gorgeous photography, and essays on the little-known culinary history of this fascinating and wild part of the world.

"Joyce Toomre . . . has accomplished an enormous task, fully on a par with the original author's slave labor. Her extensive preface and her detailed and entertaining notes are marvelous." --Tatyana Tolstaya, New York Review of Books "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." --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.

The Art of Russian Cuisine is a treasury of over 500 Russian dishes accompanied by a sampling of Russian social and literary history. The recipes span the range of ethnic influences, from Georgian to Ukrainian to Far Eastern, and include fish, meat, and poultry dishes, vegetables, soups, piroghi and other pies, dumplings of all kinds, noodles, cereals, breads, desserts. The book also features an index of Russian food sources. Clearly written step-by-step instructions quickly familiarize the cook with Russian techniques as well as numerous recipe variations, accompaniments for every dish, and menus for all occasions. The Art of Russian Cuisine goes well beyond what is normally taken for "Russian cuisine" (Chicken Kiev and Beef Stroganoff, which, Volokh says, are very "un-Russian") and presents a comprehensive look at the bountiful and diverse cuisine of traditional Russia. For aficionados of Russian food or cooks who want the most encyclopedic volume on Russian cooking, The Art of Russian Cuisine is the most complete source. Book jacket.

'Some cookbooks take you on a journey that is as poetic as it is geographical and culinary, and Salt & Time is just such a one...enthusiastic, often playful, and full of encouragement to cook dishes that are invitingly unfamiliar.' - Nigella Lawson 'If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic' - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis 'One flick through this book...shows the region's cuisine take form in dazzling vibrancy' - Foodism Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake. 'Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.' - Alissa Timoshkina

At the height of its imperial power, Russia suffered a gastronomical identity crisis. Smith traces the quest for a national cuisine in the activities of agricultural societies seeking changes in farming, in the scientific or pseudoscientific texts of doctors and ethnographers, in writings about cooking, and in a multitude of cookbooks. This study shows how the authority to control food production devolved from the state and landowners to women, in particular, housewives.
