Format: Paperback
This large format book filled with great photographs will bring you to five countries - Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan (but also to some places in between). The author is taking a journey through Russia and its neigboring lands and talks about cultural traditions when it comes to dining, favorite foods and recipes. But this is not a cookbook in its traditional form. Although you will find many recipes throughout its pages, the book tells just as much about the local traditions, cooking "preferences", favorite foods, "likes & dislikes".
In any case, it's a great read for anyone who craves to learn more about that colorful part of the world. The author of the book is German, but the photographer is Russian, and this is a plus because he captures the beauty of the countries and people like no other. The pictures with meals look delicious, too!
You will find a variety of Ukrainian appetizers on the book's pages, some traditional Russian recipes (like "pelmeni") and so, so much more!
More than any other book I have read about Russian food and cooking, this one really touched my heart...

I'm from Russia and I was struggling with finding a book in English with proper Russian recipies, until I got Culinaria. The book is great, the recipies are real ones (not adapted), the book has a lot of colourful photos.
Another advantage of the book is that it also has georgian, armenian, azerbaijan and ukrainian recipies - these cuisines are very popular in Russia nd I'm glad that now I have their recipies as well.

Russian is my main heritage, and my father came from Russia to this country years ago, I found this book very educational, and informative. Besides all the old time recipes that I grew up on, the cultural information just blew me away. What a great book!

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book from a Russian vendor at a special vendor night at the US Embassy in Moscow, Russia. I was hesitant at first, but as soon as I opened the book I discovered it was filled with many colorful photos, detailed descriptions , recipes, maps, scenery, indexes, etc. (ALL IN ENGLISH!) Every page of the book has color photos. This book would be suitable for a coffee table book, for tourists, or just to learn about the culture, history, and foods in Russia and its neighboring countries. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

This book is wonderful! My Russian grandmother could not get enough of it! Not only does it have exceptional recipes, but it also has wonderful stories to go along with many of the recipes. The book also has beautiful pictures not only of the food, but of the people and the history, too. A great purchase whether you are Russian or not!

I have all the books from Culinaria and just bought this Russia one...
Its a dream, looking in this book, you find yourself back on a dining table somewhere in Russia with all the good foods, all the rich traditions and wonderful culture of that country...
You learn how those people live in the cold winters and warm summers..
This book is more then a book, its a trip in history, traditions and looking at all the beautiful pictures make you hungry and before you know it, you are cooking and eating all those goodies, the recipes are easy to follow.

Short and sweet - this book follows the Culinaria cut an paste formula for success. Regional cuisines are explored and then the more interesting ones are elaborated on and followed up with recipes. The recipe measures are in American units such as ounces although metric units are also listed. The photography is stunning as in all the Culinaria books in the series and the authors have chosen interesting topics, areas and cusines to explore. There is not as much an emphasis on cheeses as in the other books in the series. Wines and spirits are well covered.
