A Wonderful Journey with Food in Mind Dec 12 2007
By Reader from the Midwest - Published on
This large format book filled with great photographs will bring you to five countries - Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan (but also to some places in between). The author is taking a journey through Russia and its neigboring lands and talks about cultural traditions when it comes to dining, favorite foods and recipes. But this is not a cookbook in its traditional form. Although you will find many recipes throughout its pages, the book tells just as much about the local traditions, cooking "preferences", favorite foods, "likes & dislikes".
In any case, it's a great read for anyone who craves to learn more about that colorful part of the world. The author of the book is German, but the photographer is Russian, and this is a plus because he captures the beauty of the countries and people like no other. The pictures with meals look delicious, too!
You will find a variety of Ukrainian appetizers on the book's pages, some traditional Russian recipes (like "pelmeni") and so, so much more!
More than any other book I have read about Russian food and cooking, this one really touched my heart...

Absolutely brilliant! July 6 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm from Russia and I was struggling with finding a book in English with proper Russian recipies, until I got Culinaria. The book is great, the recipies are real ones (not adapted), the book has a lot of colourful photos.
Another advantage of the book is that it also has georgian, armenian, azerbaijan and ukrainian recipies - these cuisines are very popular in Russia nd I'm glad that now I have their recipies as well.

Very great book!!! Dec 26 2007
By Natalie A. Major - Published on
Russian is my main heritage, and my father came from Russia to this country years ago, I found this book very educational, and informative. Besides all the old time recipes that I grew up on, the cultural information just blew me away. What a great book!

Excellent Book for Cooks or Just the Curious Nov. 21 2008
By R.S. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book from a Russian vendor at a special vendor night at the US Embassy in Moscow, Russia. I was hesitant at first, but as soon as I opened the book I discovered it was filled with many colorful photos, detailed descriptions , recipes, maps, scenery, indexes, etc. (ALL IN ENGLISH!) Every page of the book has color photos. This book would be suitable for a coffee table book, for tourists, or just to learn about the culture, history, and foods in Russia and its neighboring countries. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Authentic Russian Recipes April 15 2008
By Mrs. Chompins - Published on
Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful! My Russian grandmother could not get enough of it! Not only does it have exceptional recipes, but it also has wonderful stories to go along with many of the recipes. The book also has beautiful pictures not only of the food, but of the people and the history, too. A great purchase whether you are Russian or not!
