Product Details


“I squealed with joy when I learned that Darra was writing this book and the results are even more magnificent that I could have imagined. Beyond the North Wind is at once vividly passionate and methodically researched—a love letter to Russian cooking and hospitality.”—Bonnie Morales, author and chef of Kachka

“This is Darra Goldstein’s masterpiece. Not only is this book full of invaluable research, it is also brimming with warm words and love for real Russia—its people and their wonderful food and unique culture.”—Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka
“In this beautifully written, gorgeously photographed volume, Darra Goldstein captures both the archaic soul of old Russia and the hip new global zeitgeist. Her love letter to the mysterious Russian North brims with revelations, from recipes I can’t wait to make—dandelion blossom syrup! pumpkin pancakes!—to intimate portraits of cooks, erudite historical essays, and evocative travel notes. Part recipe collection, part cultural anthropology, part poetic evocation of place, this is the best kind of cookbook: one that evokes an entire culture at the table.”—Anya von Bremzen, author Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking
“Ever since I started to cook from Darra Goldstein’s classic book, A Taste of Russia, I have wanted her to return and explore more, to look at what’s happening in Russia now, to see how it has meshed the old with the new. Beyond the North Wind­—rich, delicious, human—has been well worth the wait. Nobody knows more about Russian food and culture than Darra. This is my cookbook highlight of the year.”—Diana Henry, James Beard Award–winning author
