'Foreigners who spend time in Russia soon learn that there are actually two Russias - one public and the other private. The public Russia is typically cold and dark, backward and wary. The private Russia - the Russia of tea at a friend's kitchen table or of sautéed mushrooms in a village dacha - is almost unfailingly cosy and kind' - From the Introduction Travel to the author's Russia on a journey that takes you to a springtime bliny festival and Easter feast, to a small Russian village to discover nature's bounty, on a mystical quest for autumn mushrooms, and to Red Square for New Year's and Christmas celebrations. Stop along the way for a vegetarian dinner in a communal apartment, a birthday party, a baptism, a tea party and a Russian wedding. A fascinating behind-the-scenes view of Russia and its people and a quest to rediscover a family's cultural heritage, Jones reveals how forty of its finest dishes have been preserved and passed down through the feast days of the Russian Orthodox Church and the gentle rhythm of country life.

Bootleggers and Beer Barons of the Prohibition Era

This work is an accurate, wide-ranging, and entertaining account of the illegal liquor traffic during the Prohibition Era (1920 to 1933). Based on FBI files, legal documents, old newspapers and other sources, it offers a coast-to-coast survey of Volstead crime—outrageous stories of America’s most notorious liquor lords, including Al Capone and Dutch Schultz. Readers will find the lesser known Volstead outlaws to be as fascinating as their more famous counterparts. The riveting tales of Max Hassel, Waxy Gordon, Roy Olmstead, the Purple Gang, the Havre Bunch, and the Capitol Hill Bootlegger will be new to most readers. Likewise, the exploits of women bootleggers and flying bootleggers are unknown to most Americans. Books about Prohibition usually note that Canadian liquor exporters abetted the U.S. bootleggers, but they fail to go into detail. Bootleggers and Beer Barons examines the major cross-border routes for smuggling liquor from Canada into the U.S.: Quebec to Vermont and New York, Ontario to Michigan, Saskatchewan to Montana, and British Columbia to Washington.

It's time to take back the kitchen. It's time to unlock the pantry and break free from the shackles of ready-made, industrial food. It's time to cook supper. The Lost Art of Real Cooking heralds a new old-fashioned approach to food-laborious and inconvenient, yet extraordinarily rewarding and worth bragging about. From jam, yogurt, and fresh pasta to salami, smoked meat, and strudel, Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger arm you with the knowledge and skills that let you connect on a deeper level with what goes into your body. Ken and Rosanna celebrate the patience it takes to make your own sauerkraut and pickles. They divulge the mysteries of capturing wild sourdoughs and culturing butter, the beauty of rendering lard, making cheese, and brewing beer, all without the fancy toys that take away from the adventure of truly experiencing your food. These foods were once made by the family, in the home, rather than a factory. And they can still be made in the smallest kitchens without expensive equipment, capturing flavors that speak of place and personality. What you won't find here is a collection of rigid rules for the perfect meal. Ken and Rosanna offer a wealth of recipes, history, and techniques that start with the basics and evolve into dishes that are entirely your own.

Fresh and simple recipes that celebrate the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay region—and protect its environment—from a renowned Maryland chef.

This scrumptious book, with beautiful full-color images by former Baltimore Sun Magazine photographer David W. Harp, urges readers to choose local, seasonal ingredients.

Strandveldfood is not just a recipe book. It's a collection of snapshots, in pictures and words, of a year's worth of cooking, eating, plant-hunting and photographing South Africa's Cape West Coast, built on a foundation of five years' worth of exploration and discovery. Kobus van der Merwe honours the beautiful and rugged landscape of the West Coast with an offering of delicious, seasonal recipes. Jac de Villiers' photography perfectly captures what makes the region so inspiring and just how deftly Kobus has turned his muse into culinary magic. Fittingly, recipes are presented by season, taking you on a journey through the limestone and granite Fynbos region that stretches from Postberg in the West Coast National Park, past Langebaan, Saldanha, Jacobsbaai and on toward Stompneus Bay, ending at St Helena Bay. Traditional Strandveld foods like bokkoms and snoekkuite, as well as some twists on old favorites like melktert ice-cream demonstrate Kobus' loyalty to creating authentic but contemporary recipes.
