The Soviet Diet
Every week for 2 years I would look through the Book of Tasty and Healthy Food, choose a recipe, cook it, and chase my grandmother with a notepad.
If she didn't have a story about a dish, she'd ask her friends. And if they didn't have anything, I'd speak to my friends' parents.
The stories in this book show real Soviet life, as remembered by the people who lived it.
What Readers Say
I devoured this book! Anna does an amazing job transporting the reader both back to the USSR and right into the kitchen with her and her granny as they cook their way through the Soviet era. Her free and engaging writing style had me giggling as I read through the book easily imagining the situation and comparing their experiences with my own experiences in Russia. The Soviet Diet Cookbook is a must-have for anyone who wants to immerse in Russian culture and gain a better understanding of Soviet times.
