More About the Author

Sergey Beltyukov was born and grew up in Vladivostok, Russia. He later moved to Toronto, Canada, but now lives in Los Angeles with his better half and their cat. Although Beltyukov graduated with a degree in management, his time in college ignited his true passion: European history and the history of food. Today, he runs an international commerce company, but when he's not managing his company, he spends his time at UCLA taking courses from their Writers' program and volunteering as an editing corrector for the "All Tolstoy in one click" project, which is a project that aims to digitize the entire works of Leo Tolstoy.

Beltyukov describes himself as an amateur cook and historian as well as a full-time entrepreneur. His family loves to cook and eat at home and frequently entertain friends. For Beltyukov, an ideal dinner party would consist of friends telling stories around a table stacked with unique and new culinary creations.

Leo Tolstoy's Family Recipe Book was born out of many hours of research and Beltyukov's passion for unique and delicious meals and the stories behind them. In Beltyukov's book, food isn't just sustenance: it's a culturally-important art form to be celebrated.

Leo Tolstoy would find this book repugnant. He was a vegetarian who was against violence to animals. "As long as there are slaughterhouses there will be battlefields."

A cookbook of Tolstoy's family? I was expecting vegetarian recipes since Tolstoy was vegetarian. Much to my surprise this cookbook is loaded with body parts of dead animals. Perhaps his family ate these, but he most likely did not.

This book has nothing to do with the true way Tolstoy thought or ate. He was a committed vegetarian who ate no meat. So not at all historically accurate.

I agree with many others here that it's a travesty to put Tolstoy's name on a book that promotes eating animals when he was a vegetarian who wrote so often to promote vegetarianism and against the eating and and killing of animals.

"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral."
—Leo Tolstoy, Russian novelist (1828–1910)

Leo Tolstoy is known for having promoted vegetarianism. Titling a cookbook after him that includes recipes calling for parts of animal corpses makes me lose my lunch.

Tolstoy may have been able to cook from this, but most others can't. Many recipes are either missing ingredients lists or adequate instructions. If you're liking for a cookbook, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

Leo Tolstoy would not cook animals.

"If a man's aspirations towards a righteous life are serious.. .if he earnestly and sincerely seeks a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from animal food, because, not to mention the excitement of the passions produced by such food, it is plainly immoral, as it requires an act contrary to moral feeling, i. e., killing - and is called forth only by greed."

"It is horrible! It is not the suffering and the death of the animals that is horrible, but the fact that the man without any need for so doing crushes his lofty feeling of sympathy and mercy for living creatures and does violence to himself that he may be cruel. The first element of moral life is abstinence."
