This cookbook by Soviet emigré Anya von Bremzen opened my eyes to the huge, complex variety of food from what was then the USSR. It covers a vast territory, from Armenia to Siberia, and as well as Russian classics such as blini and pelmeni, there’s a wealth of flavours – “a joyous cacophony of foods” as the author puts – it from the Caucasus, the Baltic countries and Central Asia. A Soviet smorgasbord.
