    Book Description
    From Booklist

    Among the many victims of communism in Russia was authentic Russian cooking. Deprivations and food shortages kept an ancient and elaborate cuisine from modernizing and flourishing. Visson, whose first edition of The Russian Heritage Cookbook relied on recipes brought west by emigres, has now brought together recipes from contemporary Russians still residing in the motherland. Those who relish borscht will discover multiple regional and ethnic variations of Russia's ubiquitous beet soup. Zakuski, Russia's response to Sweden's smorgasbord, offers a vast array of nibbles suitable for any party, not just Russian-themed ones, either. Among the desserts is a clever "Russian salad" cake whose many bits of chopped fruits resemble that classic vegetable salad. Mark Knoblauch

    Product Description:
    Alongside the splendors of tsarist Russia-its art, architecture, and literature-sits its cuisine, a marvelous, little-known part of Russian heritage. Based on favorite family recipes, collected by the author from the private collections of the old Russian émigré community of New York City, The Complete Russian Cookbook represents the restoration of an entire culinary heritage, which previously existed only in memory.

    Most Americans have experienced little of Russian cuisine: Beef Stroganoff, Pirozhki, Borscht, and a few others. The Complete Russian Cookbook brings together the best of these classic dishes, along with hundreds of recipes for the sumptuous meals that have delighted generations, each tested by both Russian and American cooks and adapted for the modern kitchen. More than 360 recipes are included, covering everything from hors d'oeuvres to main dishes to desserts and beverages. Potato Pirozhki with Mushroom Filling, Carp and#224; la Russe, and Almond Cake with Apricot Wine Filling are just a few of the delicious dishes to be found here, accompanied by useful introductions that provide a history of Russian cuisine.
