The vegetarian hearth: recipes and reflections for the cold seasonUser Review - Book Verdict
Well known for her books on food and culture from Russia and the former Soviet republic of Georgia (e.g., The Georgian Feast, LJ 3/15/93), Goldstein now turns to other cold climates, presenting a unique collection of comforting cold-weather dishes from Scandinavia, Turkey, and countries in between, along with those from her favorite Russia and Georgia. Some of the dishes are hearty and simple, but others are sophisticated and exotic. Goldstein is a Russian professor at Williams College, and her background in literature and cultural history is evident in the thoughtful essays, such as "Tolstoy's Table" and "Celebrations of Light," that appear throughout the book. Like Goldstein, Kochilas, author of the well-regarded The Food and Wine of Greece (LJ 11/15/90), is as interested in a country's culture as in its recipes. The headnotes for her vibrant, flavorful recipes include lots of background on her native country, and her introductory Pantry section is as much an essay on Greece's culinary history as it is a guide to ingredients. Neither of these books should be limited in appeal to vegetarians--both are more vegetable cookbooks than vegetarian diet books. Both are recommended for most collections.
