Publishers Text

Poland, Russia and the Ukraine are countries famous for their inventive use of simple, fresh ingredients. This book is a comprehensive and fascinating collection of recipes that have been gathered from this region, which stretches from the Baltic Sea in the north to the Black Sea in the south.

Illustrated throughout with maps and photographs, this guide starts with an introduction giving the background and history of Polish, Russian and Ukrainian cooking, and explores the similarities and differences of their cuisines.

Many of the dishes have remained unchanged for centuries and are rooted in peasant tradition, complementing the tartness of pickles, sauerkraut and sourdough rye bread with mushrooms, onion, sausage and herring.

There are more than 60 recipes, each accompanied by photographs of every stage of the cooking process, and tempting pictures of the finished dishes, ranging from soups and starters, through meat and poultry, fish, vegetables, and grains, to desserts, cakes and baked goods.

Full of easy-to-follow recipes and inspiring ideas, this is a rich, fascinating, detailed, accessible and informative guide to one of the classic cuisines of the world.
