This 2nd edition has been updated to reflect the extensive political changes since the Soviet era, but the recipes remain unchanged.

RUSSIAN FOOD is delicious, wholesome and easily prepared from generally available ingredients.

Many recipes are suitable for vegetarians or could be easily adapted.

JEAN REDWOOD's cookery book contains over 340 recipes in easy-to-use presentation, measured in grams and ounces.

The book is enjoyable to read as well as to cook from. Russian literature provides much 'food for thought'. There is a complete 'food story' by Chekhov in the author's own translation.

The geographical and historical background to cookery in different areas of the Russian Federation and surrounding countries is fully explained in all its splendid diversity.

RUSSIAN FOOD is based on Jean Redwood's extensive first-hand knowledge of Russia and the Russian language.
