This is not so much a useful cookbook as a glimpse into the family life and cuisine of Family Tolstoy. Not all the recipes are practical; a "kasha" (porridge or gruel-based dish) consists of massive amounts of cream clotted in the oven then mixed with cream-cooked farina and more butter. An apple pudding requires you to reconstitute and puree dried apples, then beat them with a whisk FOR AN HOUR. You might like the vegetarian beet borscht, which uses a broth of "roots and mushrooms" (I presume you could use a vegetable broth made of any root veg like celeriac and turnips and add in dried mushroom) poured over shredded beets.

Yes, Tolstoy was a vegetarian, but his table had both a vegetarian and a meat dinner for guests and family who were not. It's an interesting glimpse into the life of the family of "Lev Nicolaevich." Maybe all happy families are alike, but surely, their recipe books are all different. The most interesting tidbit is not culinary: Tolstoy's wife claims that seven times as much writing DIDN'T make it into print, including into War and Peace.

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.

Since I'm interested in all sorts of culinary techniques, stories, recipes, etc., I found this boook fascinating. The amounts of ingredients and how they were incorporated into each recipe was extremely interesting. The little side stories contributed by the family and friends only added to the pleasure of reading it. Short and sweet, I recommend it highly.

The recipes were sketchy and since I'm not familiar with some of the resulting tastes I will be in 'experiment' mode. The story with the recipes is very insightful to the times and the life of Tolstoy. Experiments here I come.

Leo Tolstoy's family recipe book
Book that has two parts: one is the diary that goes along with the recipes that are included.
What a find! What feasts they had in early 1900's. Find it fascinating about beating ingredients in one direction and the amount in some recipes-15 egg whites!

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.

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."

This is not something that I ever would have even thought to look for but it came up as a recommendation and it is certainly worth the price that I paid.
