Salt and Time

Salt and Time: Recipes from a Russian Kitchen

I am delighted to share the wonderful news that my cookbook will be published in March 2019. Salt and Time 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.
