Food for Talk is a book club for anyone interested in cooking! 

In December, what better cuisine to explore than that of Russia?  Please join us for dinner and conversation of Salt & Time: Recipes from a Russian Kitchen by Alissa Timoshkina. Please register with Barbara Shatara at for meeting information.  


About Salt & Time: Recipes from a Russian Kitchen by Alissa Timoshkina.

Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia―the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine―with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savor the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake.

Co-sponsored by City Market.
