�... This book is a collection of recipes that open a window onto a diverse and unknown culinary tradition that is worth exploring.�
Lise Hull
Imagine living in the age of Genghis Khan, in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. Times would have been especially tough, as the warrior emperor vanquished his enemies, terrorized his subjects, and forged an empire that stretched from the Black Sea in Russia to the South China Sea. Accompanying the tumult, or perhaps developing in spite of it, was an ancient culinary tradition that has become the focus of a new book.

Written by Renaissance Magazine's own staff writer Marc Cramer, Imperial Mongolian Cooking, Recipes from the Kingdoms of Genghis Khan, brings together 120 recipes from countries once part of Genghis Khan's empire. Inspired by his own Russo-Mongolian heritage, Cramer has collected recipes for salads, appetizers, and main courses from 25 modern countries, including Mongolia, Chinese-controlled Inner Mongolia, Bhutan, Tibet, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Iraq, and Armenia. Each spicy mouthful is certain to delight (or startle) the taste buds, and stimulate images of the fiery personality who changed the course of history.

Prepare to step back in time!
