Among the splendors of tsarist Russia, from art and architecture to literature and music, resides its cuisine--an art in its own right that has delighted and nourished all levels of society for hundreds of years. Based on favorite family recipes passed down through generations, collected by the author from the private collections of the old Russian migr community of New York City, The Russian Heritage Cookbook represents the achievements of an entire culinary heritage--one which previously existed only in the memories of the cooks themselves, or written on yellowing scraps of paper.
Now available in paperback, The Russian Heritage Cookbook brings together hundreds of recipes for classic dishes, making it the essential cookbook for Russians and non-Russians alike. Lynn Visson covers everything from elegant zakuski and flavorful pirogs to refreshing drinks and delectable desserts, and includes sample menus ranging from High Tea to an Easter buffet, showcasing the sumptuous meals that have delighted generations. From borscht and bliny to beef stroganoff and black bread charlotka--and multiple versions of flavored vodka, of course--these authentic recipes, accompanied by useful introductions, provide the perfect overview of the best Russian cuisine.
Описание: As Lynn Visson explores in this fascinating book, sometimes simply knowing a language is not enough to ensure good communication. Speaking a language without understanding the culture in which it is spoken can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunication. This book explores the problems of language and culture facing both Russians speaking English and Americans speaking Russian. An introduction to the basic issues of the link between language and culture is followed by a discussion of the reasons for some common errors in Russian and English. Numerous practical examples help readers understand the importance of cultural markers and signposts in both languages. Written in an accessible style, this book is intended for businesspeople, emigres and expatriates, tourists, students and teachers, and scholars (or anyone else) with an interest in the links between language and culture.
