About this title


Author shares out Russian recipes, but it is designed to be much more than a cookbook-it is a book meant to be about lifestyle. The reader finds not just recipes for soups, salads, meat and sweets, but extensive description on how to prepare it properly, to save vitamins-"I understand now that American cooking is very good, but American women start to lose old recipes." Book reminds the reader that Russian culture has a broad base to draw its riches from-"When we were the Soviet Union, we had 15 republics and our cooking culture combines a lot of different meals from different nations." "I couldn't cook. I could fry sunny side and hard-boiled eggs, but I had mom's Russian old cooking book and a lot of recipes from mom's book. They are so simple but delicious.It helps to keep your family together in the evening or weekend and remember our Russian saying "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!" This book is about Russian culture, traditions, different tips for cooking, healthy diet, and author's life story from her birthday to marriage to American man, whom she met on internet.

About the Author:

Olga Victoria Whittington was born in the former Soviet Union. She graduated from Moscow State University with a degree in chemical engineering.

"I started my new career as a wife, mother, and engineer in 1971."

She worked 30 years as an engineer and marketing director. When her Russian husband passed way, she met an American man and came to the USA.

Her fascinating background is detailed in this book through a dow-to-earth style and extensive experience in Russian culture. She describes the cooking process from her viewpoint as a chemist and all of the recipes take into account the necessary techniques to ensure retention of vitamins and flavor.

Olga currently works as a volunteer for Republican Party, and is a member of the Texas Federation of Republican Women, and is Vice-President of San Jacinto Republican Women’s Club...

She prides herself on becoming a LADY IN RED here in the US because the Soviet Union and communist party used the red color also, but now red color is a symbol of democracy and freedom for help.
