    453- The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food

    Officially titled The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food, it was often known simply as “Kniga” (translated: "book") because it was one of the only cookbooks to exist in the Soviet Union. The volume is peppered with glossy photographs of really lavish spreads and packed with text as well. There are recipes for lentils and crab salad and how to cook buckwheat nine different ways. But this book was meant to do so much more than show people how to make certain dishes — it's a Stalinist document aimed at addressing hunger itself in the USSR.

Hidden gem

It’s funny, quite often I read a title of a new episode and think: puh, doesn’t sound interesting, it’s a strange topic, who shall be interested in this? And every single episode is interesting, is widening my knowledge and is just fun. Great stuff guys, I’m so happy I stumbled across 99% invisible by chance.

Wonderful podcast

I learn so much thanks to this. Romans voice is very comforting and I very much like to listen to him. The stories are thoughtfully prepared.
