5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recipe book, 3 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Food and Cooking of Russia: Discover the Rich and Varied Character of Russian Cuisine, in 60 Authentic Recipes and 300 Glorious Photographs (The Food and Cooking of) (Hardcover)
Great and very useful cookbook. Easy to follow recipes that show Russian cusine in all its beauty. Was satisfied with my result of pelmeni, that was my favourite one. It also allows to learn Russian names of the dishes which for non speakers i consider to be an important point.

I bought this book as present for my Australian friends. I thought that it would be impossible to find book with real Russian recipes, but fortunately I was mistaken. It really contains true recipes. It has nice pictures and Russian names.
All the benefits were listed by the previous reviewer. I only stress the fact that if you want to get book with authentic Russian recipes - choose this one!

This review is from: The Food and Cooking of Russia: Discover the Rich and Varied Character of Russian Cuisine, in 60 Authentic Recipes and 300 Glorious Photographs (The Food and Cooking of) (Hardcover)
I bought this book because I have been to Russia and know that the cuisine is so much more than blini and borsch. It is a well layed out, nicely planned cookery book, with lovely photos of the various steps and overall dish.

The recipes are titled in the English translation and the Russian (in phonetic English), with a blurb about the provenence of the recipe, and maybe a serving suggestion. There are different sections, as you would expect from an all-round cookery book. Although given the extravegance and prolific number of cakes, gateux and other baked goods in Russia, I am slightly dissapointed in the dessert section.

Have the peljmeni (little beef dumplings) with a dollop of mayonaise, just like the Russians do!
