  • CCCP Cook Book True Stories of Soviet Cuisine
    CCCP Cook Book True Stories of Soviet Cuisine
    ISBN: 9780993191114
    Publication date: 01/11/2015

    This book contains over 60 recipes, each introduced with an insightful historical story or anecdote, and an accompanying image, spanning such delicacies as aspic, borscht, caviar and herring, by way of bird’s milk cake and pelmeni. As the Soviet Union struggled along the path to Communism, food supplies were often sporadic and shortages commonplace. Day to day living was hard, both the authorities and their citizens had to apply every ounce of ingenuity to maximize often inadequate resources. The stories and recipes contained here reflect these turbulent times: from basic subsistence meals consumed by the average citizen (okroshka), to extravagant banquets held by the political elite (suckling pig with buckwheat), and a scattering of classics (beef stroganoff) in between. Illustrated using images sourced from original Soviet recipe books collected by the author. Many of these sometimes extraordinary-looking pictures depicted dishes whose recipes used unobtainable ingredients, placing them firmly in the realm of ‘aspirational’ fantasy for the average Soviet household. In their content and presentation the pictures themselves act as a window into cuisine of the day, in turn revealing the unique political and social attitudes of the era.

    Salami, goulash, marmalade-filled crepes and many other specialties: this is the best of Hungarian cuisine! From hearty casseroles, meat dishes and sweet baked goods all the way to its most exquisite culinary pleasures, Hungarian cooking offers a wealth of possibilities. The richness of the country's culinary palette is no accident: the Orient and the Occident are melded in many typical Hungarian recipes that inspire gourmets to wax enthusiastic about the wonders of Hungarian cuisine. This volume is far more than just a cookbook, however. Commentaries describe the tradition of Hungarian wine culture, introduce Tokaj, the king of Hungarian wines, and relate the "fiery" history of the pepper. The texts range across the wide plains of the puszta, the cosmopolitan Danubian metropolis Budapest, and the Hungarian landscape with its sandy plains, mountains and wild, romantic forests. Colourful pictures invite readers to participate in a peasant wedding as well as Easter and Christmas feasts - and to try the refined recipes. AUTHOR: Born in Budapest, Aniko Gergely is the author of numerous articles and publications on culinary themes. She is one of the leading experts on Hungarian cooking. 1000 colour illustrations

  • Dutch Feast
    Dutch Feast
    ISBN: 9781551526874
    Publication date: 01/11/2017

    In the same way that British, Scandinavian, and German food have undergone a renaissance in recent years, writer and blogger Emily Wight is convinced that Dutch cuisine is going to be the next big thing. Her new cookbook reimagines traditional Dutch cooking, which has always been known for its thriftiness and practicality, with an emphasis on the ways that simple meals bring joy and comfort to the people who share them.

    Influenced by its colonial history, with bold flavors from places like Indonesia and the West Indies, and by its proximity to its European neighbors, Dutch cooking is surprisingly diverse, noted for its celebration of the ritual of the meal as much as the meal itself. From gezellig to borrels, and gado gado to uitsmijter, Dutch Feast delivers unconventional (but familiar) and economical (but indulgent) recipes, and gives you a new excuse to invite everyone over for cold gin and a heaping rijsttafel, an elaborate (yet economical) dinner party with a little dish of something for everyone.

    Touching on Dutch history and the back story of traditional ingredients (from licorice to herring to beer), these 120 recipes add charm and sophistication to a cuisine that is wholesome, economical, and stubbornly delicious.

    Emily Wight came to love Dutch cuisine when she married into a Dutch family. She is the author of Well Fed, Flat Broke, based on her blog of the same name.
