A Year of Russian Feasts

By Catherine Jones

A Year of Russian Feasts was Catherine’s first book that launched her writing career in 2003. Travel behind-the-scenes to a “private” Russia on a journey that takes you to a springtime bliny festival and Easter feast, to a small Russian village to preserve nature’s bounty, on a mystical quest for fall mushrooms, and to Red Square for New Year’s and Christmas celebrations. Stop along the way for a vegetarian dinner in a communal apartment, a birthday party, a baptism, a tea party, and a Russian wedding. Equal parts travel memoir and cookbook, Catherine’s work combines her warm, insightful writing style with her sensitive approach to discovering her family’s Russian heritage and its cuisine. Her forty recipes highlight Russia’s finest dishes. With numerous accolades and awards, Catherine was off to a beautiful start.
