Recommends it for: anyone who loves to cook and has an interest in (new) recipes from Eastern Europe
Recommended to BoekenTrol by: found it in the book store
For me this book is a trip down memory lane. The recipes in it are nice, but even better are the stories and pictures that form the background. I have expanded my amount of recipes and compared the ones I had (form locals) with the ones that I found here.

What surprised me most of all, is that adzhika is written down as bell-pepper sauce, while in the original that I saw being made in Tbilisi bell pepper was only a small ingredient. There they used red pepper / chilli peppers as main ingredient.

This is my favorite set of cookbooks. These are like travel guides. Each region is carefully explained, and the food that region is known for is detailed. The pictures are exquisite. The books are so heavy that I have to get them down off the shelf for my mom and put her at the dining room table (as she's too little to hold these in her lap)!

The whole Culinaria series are really fine books; some good in-depth cultural history offers occasionally fascinating, and less often, mundane insights into the culinary traditions of each region. If there were more recipes, I'd go 5 stars...

Ok, so I didn't actually read the whole thing. It's a cookbook... but with more pictures and article than usual. Beautiful, beautiful book. Brings back so many memories and answers so many questions. However, does not explain the Ukranian facination with aspic. Meat jello is not good, ever.
