"A collection of delicious modern recipes from Siberia and beyond. 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. In Alissa Timoshkina's words: "Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia-or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book, I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavor combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches-revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.""-- Provided by publisher.

"Cincinnati loves goetta. Since its arrival with nineteenth-century Germanic immigrants, this humble dish has evolved from peasant staple to ubiquitous delicacy. Once upon a time, Cincinnatians found goetta mostly in neighborhood butcher shops, in Over-the-Rhine's so-called Goetta Alley and through Sander Packing, its first commercial producer. Now hungry locals scarf it down at diners and white-linen establishments alike and in everything from egg rolls to Reuben sandwiches. Tracing goetta from its Germanic origins and its first stop in Greater Cincinnati to its largest commercial producers, Queen City Sausage and Gliers, food etymologist and "Goettevangelist" Dann Woellert explores goetta's history in the city that made it regionally famous"--Back cover.

July 30, 2019
Banatwala, Mayalou, author.
113 pages : color illustrations ; 23 x 29 cm
"Volume 1"--Cover.
"Records, musicians, cocktails"--Title page.
"Upon digging into Cincinnati's rich musical past, it becomes apparent that chronicling 'the show' is and always will be a little blurry (much like what happens after a couple of libations). Often this history is a more oral tradition, passed down from musician to music lover, than academic research. There are always at least two sides to every story, sometimes more. The relationship between artist and label is one that sends almost every aspiring musician into a tornado of licensing and publishing, versus the creative freedom of the artist. Cheers to those who learned how to ride the wave of popular music! Whether it be by standing their ground and holding true to their art 100%, or those who found a way to wind their funk into the very breath of the tracks put forth on the label. In this book, Kristen Kreft and Mayalou Banatwala strive to find the soul of the artist, combine it with some factual history, and amp up traditional cocktails with their Rocktails' spin. Each ingredient in each drink is hand-picked and intentional, uniquely portraying our interpretation of the musical artist with the utmost love and dignity. We hope that you enjoy reading the brief histories that we have provided, with the soundtrack of Cincinnati musical history wafting through the air, sipping reverently on the paired Rocktails we have so lovingly created for Cincinnati music fans."--Amazon website.
