Présentation de l'éditeur
This book features over 185 recipes, including soups and starters, meat and poultry, fish dishes, vegetables, grains and pasta, and desserts and bakes. All the classic dishes are featured, from the delicate flavours of Eggs with Caviare to hearty main meals such as Chicken Kiev, Hungarian Goulash and Romanian Kebabs, with simple and tasty vegetable accompaniments, filling rye breads and poppy seed rolls. A tantalizing selection of desserts and gateaux are included, from Black Forest Cherry Cake to Dobos Torta, as well as light and flaky pastries such as Apple Strudel, and sweet biscuits and breads. Every recipe has been tested and adapted to suit the modern kitchen; there are informative introductions to each section and over 750 colour photographs, maps and illustrations. This comprehensive volume is divided into three regional sections: Russia, Poland and the Ukraine; Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic; and Romania, Bulgaria and the East Adriatic. Each of these contains recipes for soups and starters, meat and poultry, fish dishes, vegetables, grains and pasta, and desserts and bakes. In this way the book explores the many similarities, as well as the differences, between the cuisines of the countries of Eastern Europe. Hearty, nourishing and brimming with flavour and variety, the recipes in this book will surprise and delight all who explore them.
