Descrizione libro BROADWAY BOOKS, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. 196 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A James Beard Award-winning writer captures life under the Red socialist banner in this wildly inventive, tragicomic memoir of feasts, famines, and three generations Born in 1963, in an era of bread shortages, Anya grew up in a communal Moscow apartment where eighteen families shared one kitchen. She sang odes to Lenin, black-marketeered Juicy Fruit gum at school, watched her father brew moonshine, and, like most Soviet citizens, longed for a taste of the mythical West. It was a life by turns absurd, naively joyous, and melancholy--and ultimately intolerable to her anti-Soviet mother, Larisa. When Anya was ten, she and Larisa fled the political repression of Brezhnev-era Russia, arriving in Philadelphia with no winter coats and no right of return. Now Anya occupies two parallel food universes: one where she writes about four-star restaurants, the other where a taste of humble kolbasa transports her back to her scarlet-blazed socialist past. To bring that past to life, Anya and her mother decide to eat and cook their way through every decade of the Soviet experience. Through these meals, and through the tales of three generations of her family, Anya tells the intimate yet epic story of life in the USSR. Wildly inventive and slyly witty, Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking is that rare book that stirs our souls and our senses. Codice libro della libreria ABZ9780307886828

Descrizione libro Broadway Books. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 368 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.2in. x 0.8in.A James Beard Award-winning writer captures life under the Red socialist banner in this wildly inventive, tragicomic memoir of feasts, famines, and three generations With startling beauty and sardonic wit, Anya von Bremzen tells an intimate yet epic story of life in that vanished empire known as the USSRa place where every edible morsel was packed with emotional and political meaning. Born in 1963, in an era of bread shortages, Anya grew up in a communal Moscow apartment where eighteen families shared one kitchen. She sangodesto Lenin, black-marketeeredJuicy Fruit gumat school, watched her father brew moonshine, and, like most Soviet citizens, longed fora taste of the mythical West. It was a life by turns absurd, drab, naively joyous, melancholyand ultimately intolerable to her anti-Soviet mother, Larisa. When Anya was ten, she and Larisa fled the political repression of Brezhnev-era Russia, arriving in Philadelphia with no winter coats and no right of return. Now Anya occupies two parallel food universes: one where she writes about four-star restaurants, the other where a taste of humble kolbasa transports her back to her scarlet-blazed socialist past. To bring that past to life, in its full flavor, both bitter and sweet, Anya and Larisa, embark on a journey unlike any other: they decide to eat and cook their way through every decade of the Soviet experienceturning Larisas kitchen into a time machine and an incubator of memories. Together, mother and daughter re-create meals both modest and sumptuous, featuring a decadent fish pie from the pages of Chekhov, chanakhi (Stalins favorite Georgian stew), blini, and more. Through these meals, Anya tells the gripping story of three Soviet generationsmasterfully capturing the strange mix of idealism, cynicism, longing, and terror that defined Soviet life. We meet her grandfather Naum, a glamorous intelligence chief under Stalin, and her grandmother Liza, who made a perilous odyssey to icy, blockaded Leningrad to find Naum during World War II. We meet Anyas hard-drinking, sarcastic father, Sergei, who cruelly abandons his family shortly after Anya is born; and we are captivated by Larisa, the romantic dreamer who grew up dreading the black public loudspeakers trumpeting the glories of the Five-Year Plan. Their stories unfold against the vast panorama of Soviet history: Lenins bloody grain requisitioning, World War II hunger and survival, Stalins table manners, Khrushchevs kitchen debates, Gorbachevs disastrous anti-alcohol policies. And, ultimately, the collapse of the USSR. And all of it is bound together by Anyas passionate nostalgia, sly humor, and piercing observations. Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking is that rare book that stirs our souls and our senses. From the Hardcover edition. This item ships from multiple locations.
