Product Description

About the Author

Karina Baldry was born in Moscow, Russia, to a saxophonist Father and a ballerina Mother who trained at the Bolshoi Theatre. Karina graduated from Moscow Academy of Foreign Languages as a linguist and used to write poetry and short essays. Since her childhood though, she has been an enthusiastic cook. After moving to the UK seven years ago with her family, Karina decided to combine her two passions in life writing and food. Hence the idea to write her first cookbook about the food she grew up with; whilst at the same time upgrading Russian food in the eyes of a Westerner. As a child, she shared her time between Moscow and summer holidays in the Caucasus, which had a huge influence on her style of cooking. Karina s food can be called Russian fusion as it is heavily influenced by the flavours from the Caucasus and Central Asia. Karina now lives with her Husband and Son in Gerrards Cross.

Growing up in the West, with very little knowledge of real life behind the 'Iron Curtain', I found this book very refreshing. It's a series of recipes and memories, giving a taste of what it was like to live in Soviet Russia. The recipes all look appetising - and I have tried several and found that they worked successfully.

Its so nice to see a fresh outlook on the Russian cuisine, which has been, in my view, underestimated on the West. The author not just shares amazing new recipes, but also gives such a warm and interesting insight to the Russian way of life in Soviet days. Tasteful and elegant book with recipes easy to follow. Great gift for anyone interested in Russia, its cooking and way of life.

If you are interested in Eastern Europe, it's culture, history and cuisine then you will love this book. Karina Baldry offers the reader a glimpse of life in the USSR of old and takes us on a marvelous journey through her childhood and the food she clearly loves.

Format: Paperback
This is a great intro to Russian cuisine, which is often overlooked outside of Russia. I've tried a few of the recipes already and they've gone down well with my young family who are always keen to try something new.
