This book couldn't have come in a better time; the cuisines of Eastern Europe are so undiscovered and yet full of delicious surprises! Silvena is presenting us with exactly that, there are beetroot and vodka marinated gravadlax, the best recipe for white borscht, fluffy almond and lemon cake with pomegranate syrup, mouth-watering honey-vodka marinated beef fillet with mustard sauce and a large section on home made vodkas!!!

And yes, plenty of beautiful photographs from as far as Georgia!!!

I think this book is here to stay and I love the unpredictable and alluring content, there is some elegant prose too.

How nice to find a cookery book featuring food from the less familiar regions of Europe!

I've enjoyed exploring this book and producing some 'different' meals. I was a little dubious that, as a vegetarian, many of the recipes would be inappropriate, but I have found a lot to cook here. Many of the meat recipes are actually for mince, so Quorn/soya can be easily substituted, and there are many ideas for puddings and vegetables. The book is attractively laid out, with engaging photographs, and interesting snippets of cultural information. The only slight quibble I have is with the quality of the actual paper, which seems poorer than is usual for a cookery book of this quality

I have seen Silvana on television and her exuberant personality encouraged me to purchase this book and was intrigued to see what type of food she includes in her feasts.

The recipes had a different take on many ingredients that I use on a weekly basis ones ABD have never come across before which is unusual if you buy as many cookery books as I do.

I would recommend this book and try the recipes with Gusto

Judging the book by results, not the appositeness of the title, its alleged politics or photography or whatever:

The moldovan moussaka is delicious! I substituted the mince for breadcrumbs and squash for a veggie version.
The Georgian Kachapuri bread is delicious!
The borscht is delicious- love the grated apple! (even without the meat)
The gyuvech is delicious! (but better with added sumac)

The recipes are not all easy to follow and some are time-consuming.
looking forward to cooking more of these gems. Also, I like the photography.

Arrived very quickly. Good condition apart from a couple of page slightly stuck together with ? Food particles, but for the price it was acceptable. Interesting recipes. The biggest problem will be finding some of the ingredients!

Really nice recipes, not at all the cabbage-potato fare you might expect from this piece of Europe. Clear instructions too & appetizing photo's make you wonder why this isn't in print anymore.
