Description: To the Russian people, eating and drinking are not just a matter of refueling but a vital expression of their nature, their tradition, their way of life. All through Russian literature writers have written lovingly, lyrically, about food and drink. In Russia great eaters have always been admired and great hosts revered. 

Small wonder, then, that Russian cuisine is one of the most exciting in the world -- as diverse and varied as the country itself. And in this marvelous collection of Russian recipes of the past and present you'll find dishes of every type: Pheasant with Oriental Sauce from the East ... Russian Apple Pie from the West ... Kisel (fruit juice pudding) from the North ... Chahohbili Chicken from the ancient kingdom of Georgia in the South. These are just samples.
