Bonnie Morales: Kachka: A Return to Russian Cooking
Friday, December 15, 6 - 7:30 pm
Chef and restaurateur Bonnie Frumkin Morales is descended from a family of Soviet Jewish émigrés, and her cookbook Kachka-named for the restaurant she opened with her husband in Portland, Oregon-is the first Russian cookbook from a major American publisher in nearly thirty years. And it's more than just a cookbook - it's a deep dive into the story of Russia, and the first-generation experience, through the lens of surprising, delicious food--from pickled vegetables and curated meats to Georgian pates and tender turnovers. Come by tonight to hear Bonnie talk and enjoy a few snacks from this luscious cookbook that makes a fantastic holiday gift and is also a great resource for your holiday entertaining.
