Belarusian cuisine traces its roots back through many centuries and is based on a way of life that has survived from generation to generation. Though it is similar to the hearty, home-style offerings of Russian and Ukrainian cuisine, Belarusian cooking has its own distinctive specialties, including the well-known draniki, potato fritters served with fried mushrooms and sour cream, and all manner of dumplings, soups, and meat dishes.
With recipes from both the aristocracy and peasants, this book offers readers the best of the Belarusian table. It includes more than 190 easy-to prepare, authentic recipes, a guide to the staples of the Belarusian kitchen and enticing menus for Christmas and Easter.
