9 Tastes of Life
The Gastronomic Heritage of Skandinavia and Russia
We are pleased to invite you to a presentation of a book “9 Tastes of Life: The Gastronomic Heritage of Scandinavia and Russia” by Ekaterina Bagreeva.
On a Sunday afternoon as the spirit of Christmas fills the air with the flavor of gingerbread cookies, you are invited to a journey into the gastronomic traditions and cultures of four countries: Russia, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
What do people from these countries serve during Winter festivities? How do you create a cozy atmosphere with a dish from Finland? What is Norwegian Troll Cream made of? Why are the Russian pancakes round and how do you make Borsch? Where do you combine fish and meat in one dish, and what are “Veiled peasant girls”?
“9 Tastes of Life – The Gastronomic Heritage of the Nordic Countries and Russia” is the book celebrating large and small occasions in life with unique recipes from renown chefs, eager hobby cooks and caring grandmothers.
This beautifully illustrated book with 55 recipes which is written in both English and Russian, is a perfect Christmas gift and a great opportunity to experience the gastronomic treasures, as well as stereotypes of Russia, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
