Description: From the Russian colony of San Francisco -- largest in the U.S. -- comes a priceless collection of recipes for traditional Russian fare, lovingly and carefully adapted into a fine Russo-American cuisine. Using the excellent sour creams, meats, produce and seasonings available at any supermarket, any cook can create the fabled dishes that have graced the tables and delighted the palates of peasants and tsars for generations -- and in a minimum of kitchen time. 

Russian cooking is as varied as the landscape and history from which it has developed: savory, piquant, simple but never prosaic. Zakuski (hors d'oeuvres,) hearty soups, black breads, distinctive main dishes and glorious traditional desserts like plombir and paskha are here, set against the turbulent social history of their development. For epicures, Recipes from the Russians of San Francisco cookbook offers the ease of preparation coupled with authentic culinary adventure.
