Foodie Reading... Katish


Wanda Frolov was a writer for Gourmet Magazine and began publishing these stories in the magazine from what I understand.  She put them together into a book form and made quite a lovely fiction/cookbook out of it.  This book is set in the 1920's.  It is about a Russian immigrant named Katish and how she came to live in LA with a family as their housekeeper and cook.  Simple Russian recipes are scattered throughout the text and I have tried several of them, myself.  I have not found a bad one, yet.... and I suspect I won't.

I am just sad it took me so long to finally pick it up and read it because once I did I could barely put it down for long.  If you are a foodie you will, no doubt, enjoy this book.
