Morel "Strudel" Shashlyk

Morel “Strudel” Kebabs and Vegetarian Plov

Here’s a recipe I’d like to share before morel season is well and truly over! Morels are among my favorite mushrooms, and even if some species are more flavorful than others, they rarely disappoint when they’re bought fresh and handled properly. And with two elements each calling for a generous amount of these delectable fungi, […]

Czech Impressions: Lunching in Prague like a Tourist

Our gastro-tour of Prague resumes, albeit on a smaller scale. So far, we’ve tried the city’s fine dining options, both traditional and modern. Yet between these feasts, we need to grab bites for lunch. With Prague’s central district being overcrowded with tourists, this is easy and difficult at the same time. Easy because you can find […]

Liberland

Welcome, Liberland!

Food Perestroika would like to congratulate Liberland on being the newest country in Eastern Europe. By virtue of geography, it automatically falls under the umbrella of this blog, and perhaps I will fill future posts with related recipes, and travel stories! Hey, why not? But what is Liberland, you may ask. In a nutshell. this is a libertarian […]

Moravian Pike Goujonnettes, Bacon Sauce and Spring Vegetables

Moravian Pike Goujonnettes, Bacon Sauce and Spring Vegetables

When I last talked about my trip to Moravia, I didn’t actually give you many details about the fishing itself. Truth be told, I almost came home with nothing to recount at all. I had booked a full-day trip with Fisherman John, with the optimistic objective of targeting pike in the morning, and lake trout in the afternoon. […]

Roumanian Steak and its Accompaniments, from Romania and Beyond

Roumanian Steak and its Accompaniments, from Romania and Beyond

Inspired by my most recent visit to Sammy’s Roumanian and, posthumously, by a dinner at the now defunct Kutsher’s Tribeca, I decided to try my hand at the Romanian tenderloin — that intriguing dish that’s neither really Romanian (do you know how they call a restaurant that serves properly cooked steaks in Romania? An American steakhouse), nor […]

Stuffed Wild Pheasant with Morel Coulis and Spring Vegetables

Stuffed Wild Pheasant with Morel Coulis and Spring Vegetables

So, I decided to skip the spring turkey hunt this year. Not because of my mixed success at shooting birds with brains the size of peas, as some ill-spirited mockers might say, but because I’m actually not all that thrilled by the possibilities that their meat offers in the kitchen. The taste of wild turkey, while certainly more […]

Moravian Trout Rillettes and Tartare

Moravian Trout Tartare and Rillettes

True story: A couple weekends ago, I went fishing in rural Moravia. I caught a trout, picked up a bottle of Riesling from a nearby vineyard, came up with this recipe, inspired by local specialties, and got back home on Sunday night. Still, no jet lag, and no need to break the bank — I wasn’t in the Moravian […]

Czech Impressions: La Dégustation Bohême Bourgeoise

To continue our gastronomical tour of Prague, after the Blue Duckling, we’re heading to the Jewish Quarter for a dinner at La Dégustation Bohême Bourgeoise, one of only two restaurants in Czech Republic to have a Michelin star (the other one is Alcron, which serves an “international” menu). It’s also one of the only establishments, or […]

Georgian Cuisine - Mingrelian Khachapuri

Mingrelian Khachapuri, Georgia’s Double Cheese Bread

While Blini and Oladi, Russian Pancakes remains the most visited post on this blog, things are slowly changing. The top post for the past few months has been the Imeretian Khachapuri, followed by the Lángos (another greasy bread!) and the exotic Tajik Qurutob. So in the continued spirit of giving people more of what they want, I’m happy to bring you another […]
