T-Bone Whacks and Caviar Snacks is the first cookbook in America to
focus on the foods of the Asian side of Russia. Filled with fascinating
food history, cultural insights, and personal stories, it chronicles the
culinary adventures of two intrepid Texans who lived, worked, and ate
their way around Siberia and the Russian Far East.
Featuring 140 traditional and modern recipes, with many illustrations,
T-Bone Whacks and Caviar Snacks includes dozens of regional recipes
from cooks in Asian Russia, along with recipes for the European and
Tex-Mex dishes that the author and her husband cooked on the
“Stoves-from-Hell” in their three Russian apartments, for intimate
candlelight dinners during the dark Siberian winter and for lavish
parties throughout the year.
You’ll learn how to make fresh seafood dishes from Russia’s Far East,
pine nut meringues and frozen cranberry cream from Irkutsk, enticing
appetizers from the dining car of a Trans-Siberian luxury train, and
flaming “Baked Siberia” (the Russian twist on Baked Alaska). And here’s
the bonus: All of these recipes can be made with ingredients from your
local supermarket or your nearest delicatessen.
