Endorsements and Review Quotes
“Igor Klekh’s Adventures in the Slavic Kitchen sets out to woo the reader by offering a continuous stream of culinary ponderings, somewhat in the style of one of Gogol’s narrators. For Klekh, ‘Slavic’ comprehends Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Moldovan, and Polish food – a real banquet. Klekh appeals loquaciously to the reader, with ebullient asides and advisory interjections.” Cathy McAteer, East-West Review
