From the acclaimed Portland restaurant comes a debut cookbook enlivening Russian cuisine with a typically Portland emphasis on vibrant, locally sourced ingredients. Bonnie Frumkin Morales and Deena Prichep’s Kachka (Flatiron) provides not only comforting traditional and cheeky modern recipes, but a full celebration of Russia’s culinary heritage. From the Frumkin family’s journey from Belarus to America to the varied political, cultural, and geographic forces at play across the Russian table, Kachka’s stories reveal the meaning behind each bite. The food is clear and inviting, rooted in the past yet not at all afraid to play around and wear its punk rock heart on its sleeve.
