Nick asked:

Did anyone else try to make borscht after reading this?

Chana I made borscht while reading it, but unrelated to the book. I had a surplus of beets, carrots, cabbage, onions and potatoes. So borscht it was. It turned out delicious. I also put in crushed tomatoes, vinegar, honey and spiced with plenty of dill. Served hot.
Gabrielle Not during this heat wave, but then maybe I ought to try cold borscht?
Jeanne Mitchell I do make borscht, from my grandmother's recipe. She always added sour cream at the table. I never found it "pungent", but then, I always ate it hot.
