From Our Review:
Between the covers of Beyond the North Wind is not what you’d expect. No borscht and potatoes here. Instead you find food that comes from a harsh climate and poor soil, yet in its austerity author Darra Goldstein gives us astonishingly complex flavors by using current cooking techniques. The result is a cookbook suitable for daily meals and friendly gatherings. You’ll learn to riff on traditional ideas, like blini or dumplings, soups and grains. Perhaps what you’ll love most is that this isn’t a cookbook written just to create another cultural cookbook. Goldstein shares her deep, life-long love for an extraordinary country of which these recipes are an inextricable part of that story.  You will return to this book again and again to cook and learn how to transform basic foods into elevated cuisine.
