Kathleen Gati's sensual Russian accent provides the ideal ambiance for the author's account of her quest to re-create Russian cuisine--sumptuous feasts, modest dishes, and simple country fare. Von Bremzen, a Russian emigrée, describes classic Russian food culture, as well as the diversity of regional cuisines, and her descriptions are matched by Gati's delivery. In this historically informative work, Von Bremzen and her Russian mother fashion a "time machine and an incubator of memories" while mastering the art of Soviet cookery. Recipes are designed to evoke decades of post-revolutionary Russian history and exquisitely tasty remembrances. A personal family journey, infused with the terror of a harrowing past, is captured in this transporting volume. A.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
