Celebrated Portland chef Bonnie Frumkin Morales brings her acclaimed Portland restaurant Kachka into your home kitchen with a debut cookbook recontextualizing Russian cuisine with an emphasis on vibrant, locally sourced ingredients.
The recipes in this book set a communal table with nostalgic Eastern European dishes like Caucasus-inspired meatballs, porcini barley soup, and cauliflower schnitzel. Other recipes explore the new and exciting twists on current food trends like pickling, fermentation, and bone broths.
Kachka's recipes and narratives show how Russia's storied tradition of smoked fish, cultured dairy, and a shot of vodka can be celebratory, elegant, and as easy as meat and potatoes. The food is clear and inviting, rooted in the past, yet not afraid to play around and wear its punk rock heart on its sleeve.
