Darra Goldstein in Conversation with Boris Fishman
Darra Goldstein and Boris Fishman
Beyond the North Wind: Russia in Recipes and Lore

Join renowned food scholar and cookbook writer Darra Goldstein in conversation as she discusses her new cookbook, Beyond the North Wind: Russia in Recipes and Lore.

More than just a collection of delicious recipes, Goldstein’s book uses travelogue, ethnography, and personal anecdote to explore Russia’s wild northern reaches. The conversation promises to be lively as Goldstein digs into the role of eating and drinking in Russian culture. She’ll also discuss the transformation of the Russian food scene from Soviet times into the present; the ever-inventive ways the Russians deal with scarcity, whether caused by droughts, war, or political sanctions; and what the Russian table can help us understand about Russia and Russians today, all the way to the man in the Kremlin.
