Product description


"Moving and darkly comic" (Niki Segnit The Sunday Times)

"Heartbreakingly poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. This is an important book, a must read!" (Heston Blumenthal)

"Vastly entertaining... A real treat." (Woman & Home)

"By turns funny, tragic and nostalgic, this is a wonderful, fascinating volume, which puts a human face on the grim pages of the history books" (The Lady)

"This poignant memoir is an education in the richness of eastern European cuisine, and the story of Soviet communism, through the lens of family experience." (Observer)

"wry, provocative, genre-busting..." (Wall Street Journal)

"Absorbing... a social history of the Soviet Union cast through the prism of food" (Jewish Chronicle)

"Rollicking and heartrending" (Time)

"You will read few better books about food, family, exile or the Soviet tragedy―and none, I'll bet, which combines all those themes this magically. Funny, angry, ingenious and moving." (AD Miller, author of 'Snowdrops')

"The culinary memoir has lately evolved into a genre of its own... But Anya von Bremzen is a better writer than most of the genre's practitioners, as this delectable book, which tells the story of postrevolutionary Russia through the prism of one family's meals, amply demonstrates… von Bremzen moves artfully between historical longshots...and intimate details. The descriptions of meals are delightful..." (New York Times)
