The dust jacket has some light edge wear, rubbing and several small edge tears and chips. "Yes, I know my staff will charge me with favoritism, for this is really ""only a cookbook"". But what a cookbook. I'd like to retire to my own country kitchen and try out every recipe in the book. Not only do they sound too tempting for my figure, but they are charmingly done, in much the way that Clementine in the Kitchen made its way to every gourmet's heart. Katish was the name by which Ekaterina Pavlovna Belaev was known. A young Russian widow, she accepted the author's household as her own, settled down to the joys of marketing in southern California, and to the appreciative audience for the dishes turned out in a West Los Angeles kitchen. This book is part Katish- and part Mother and Aunt Martha and Bob and Wanda. (Not to mention all kinds of guests, some self-invited, some urged by Katish to return). But chiefly it is the sort of cookbook you have to own- and mark marginally- and try for yourself, from the Cheese Cake to the Dragomirovsky Farshmak." (from Kirkus Reviews)
