MelMM | Jan 22, 202008:35 AM     33

It was neck and neck for a while, but the combo of KACHKA and SUPRA pulled ahead at the end of voting for the win. Reporting threads will go up on Feb 1. In the meantime, use this thread for discussion about the books.

KACHKA: A RETURN TO RUSSIAN COOKING, by Bonnie Frumkin Morales
https://tinyurl.com/yx6ojmt9
"From bright pickles to pillowy dumplings, ingenious vodka infusions to traditional homestyle dishes, and varied zakuski to satisfying sweets, Kachka the cookbook covers the vivid world of Russian cuisine. More than 100 recipes show how easy it is to eat, drink, and open your heart in Soviet-inspired style, from the celebrated restaurant that is changing how America thinks about Russian food."

SUPRA, A FEAST OF GEORGIAN COOKING, by Tiko Tuskadze
https://tinyurl.com/vglwpls
"Bordered by Russia, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia, and situated at a crossroads on an ancient East-West trading route, Georgia’s rich and diverse history is nowhere more evident than through its cuisine and legendary hospitality.Central and unique to the culinary tradition of Georgia is the 'supra', a coming together of family and friends to share heart-warming toasts, great conversation, free-flowing drink and, most importantly, dish upon dish of mouth-watering food.In this, her first book, Tiko Tuskadze, chef-owner of London’s celebrated Little Georgia restaurant, opens her kitchen to share her love for the food of her home country and the recipes and stories that have been passed down through her family for generations"
