Salt & Time: Recipes from a modern Russian kitchen [9781784725389]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Chak-chak (fried honey cake).

'Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.' - Alissa Timoshkina

'If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic' - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis


AUTHOR:

Food and Russian culture are two of Alissa's greatest passions. Born to a family of avid readers and lovers of all things cinematic, she grew up exposed to the classics of Russian and world cinema and literature.

History was also a subject that resonated in her household: Alissa's great-grandmother Rosalia and her son Yuri (my grandpa) were Jewish-Ukrainian Holocaust survivors, and she'd also witnessed the Russian Revolution as a child in the late 1910s. Sometimes she felt that she too had lived through those monumental historical episodes, so vivid were their stories. Eventually Alissa realized that it is through food that she could establish the most profound and meaningful connection to her family, and to her great-grandma in particular.

Within a year of setting up her Instagram account, Alissa had decided to quit her job and embark on a new project that would encompass her love of food and expertise in cinema: a cinema-supper club called KinoVino. Since its launch in 2015, KinoVino has established a reputation as one of London's most original projects, redefining the food and film scene and featured in Vogue, Olive, Vice, The Curious Pear, Khoollect, Time Out, the Telegraph and on BBC Radio 4's Food Programme. Partnerships, clients and collaborations include AirBnB, Pantone, Seedlip, Tanqueray, The Severn Sisters, Adidas, The Food Network and the Evening Standard. Alissa was also shortlisted for the 2017 Young British Foodie Awards.
