More about this item

The sources of the material used for compiling "Russian Cooking" include old manuscripts and cookbooks, ethnographic researches, current selections of recipes.

In this book, therefore, the reader will find some long-forgotten Russian national dishes as well as those popular today.

Every country has its own favorite dishes, traditional ways of preparing food that are historically determined and that best suit the national taste, the people's way of living, the climate. It took many thousands of years for eating habits to develop, bit by bit, thanks to the collective efforts of ancestors and a long process of evolution before they became crystallized into the "national taste". That is why to a Russian, shchi (cabbage soup) and okroshka (cold kvass soup) seem more delicious than the most dainty dishes of European cuisines.

The mode of life of a nation is influenced by many factors - natural, social and others. To some degree it is also affected by cultural interchange with neighbors in the course of which each nation adopts all that is most valuable and more to its taste, including culinary recipes.

Hence, the daily fare of Russian people has come to include such foreign dishes as cutlets, sauces, jelly, etc., so that now it is hard to conceive of a menu without these dishes, no matter how or when they happened to come to Russia.

In the course of historical development, changes occur in the national diet with the appearance of new foodstuffs and new dishes. Tomatoes appeared in Russia comparatively recently. yet now it is hard. for example. to imagine a solyanka (thick tart meat or fish soup) or borshch (a beet soup laden with vegetables and meat) without them. Potatoes made their appearance in Russia about three centuries ago. At the present time. various dishes made with them have long become characteristic of the standard fare of many peoples of the Soviet Union.

The aim of the composer of the book was to select recipes for preparing the most nutritious and tasty dishes from the great variety of national dishes with which the Russian cuisine abounds.

To all readers of "Russian Cooking" who have sent us their comments and requests concerning the content and design of the book Mir Publishers is very grateful. In the new edition we have. as far as possible. tried to take into consideration all the remarks and suggestions made by our readers. which. we hope. has helped to increase the value of the book and make it more convenient to use.

We believe that English-speaking readers interested in different national cuisines and those who wish to experiment with Russian cookery will find much of value in our new edition.

The recipes in this book are for 4-5 servings unless otherwise indicated.  Above information is from the Book Foreword.
