The Food and Cooking of Eastern Europe, when it was first published in  
1989, surveyed the rich and diverse food of cultures known to few  
people in the West during the half a century when Europe was divided.  
A companion volume to The Food and Cooking of Russia, it contained  
more than two hundred practical recipes interwoven with historical  
background and notes. Readers could rediscover classics such as  
Hungarian gulyas and Polish barszcz in their original setting, and  
savour new delights such as Fugger’s Lemon Cake and wonderful  
vegetable recipes from the Balkans. Now, in a quite different  
political world, this book is a vital resource for remembering life  
before the Iron Curtain was lifted.

There are a number of Balkans cookbooks but not so many in print on  


She includes historical material.
