What's Cooking in the Kremlin by Witold Szablowski EPUB
âChatty and illuminating.â âThe New York Times âRivetingâa delicious odyssey full of history, humor, and jaw-dropping stories. If you want to understand the making of modern Russia, read this book.â âDaniel Stone, bestselling author of The Food Explorer A high-spirited, eye-opening, appetite-whetting culinary travel adventure that tells the story of the last hundred years of Russian power through food, by an award-winning Polish journalist whoâs been praised by both Timothy Snyder and Bill Buford In the gonzo spirit of Anthony Bourdain and Hunter S. Thompson, Witold SzabÅowski has tracked downâand broken bread withâpeople whose stories of working in Kremlin kitchens impart a surprising flavor to our understanding of one of the worldâs superpowers. In revealing what Tsar Nicholas IIâs and Leninâs favorite meals were, why Stalinâs cook taught Gorbachevâs cook to sing to his dough, how Stalin had a food tester while he was starving the Ukrainians during the Great Famine, what the recipe was for the first soup flown into outer space, why Brezhnev hated caviar, what was served to the Soviet Unionâs leaders at the very moment they decided the USSR should cease to exist, and whether Putinâs grandfather really did cook for Lenin and Stalin, SzabÅowski has written a fascinating oral historyâcomplete with recipes and photosâof Russiaâs evolution from culinary indifference to decadence, famine to feasts, and of the Kremlinâs Olympics-style preoccupation with food as an expression of the countryâs global standing. Traveling across Stalinâs Georgia, the war fronts of Afghanistan, the nuclear wastelands of Chornobyl, and even to a besieged steelworks plant in Mariupolâoften with one-of-a-kind access to locales forbidden to foreign eyes, and with a rousing sense of adventure and an inimitable ability to get people to spill the teaâhe shows that a century after the revolution, Russia still uses food as an instrument of war and feeds its people on propaganda.
