I’ve never been more excited about anything than being finally able to share some pretty amazing news! At the end of last year I have signed a contract with an incredible publisher – Octopus – and since then have been working on my first cookbook! Entitled Salt and Time: Recipes from a Russian Kitchen, the book explores the culinary heritage that I grew up with, delving into the intricate history of Russian, Siberian and Soviet cooking. It will feature dishes dear to my family, recipes that I’ve discovered in Soviet and pre-Revolutionary Russian cookbooks as well as my own contemporary takes on classic flavour combinations. It’s been an absolute dream come true to work with an incredible team at Octopus, my agent, Zoe Ross, as well as with a group of most talented women in the industry – Lizzie Mayson, Tamara Vos, Louie Waller and Charlotte Heal.
Yes, I am particularly proud that this book has been created by an all-women crew!
The beauty will be out on 7th of March 2019 but you can already pre-order it on Amazon.
