On One Woman Kitchen we explore the vital option that food has deep historic and emotional resonance. And no one understands this better than Darra Goldstein., award-winning author, culinary scholar, Russian Literature Professor, and Founding Editor of one of the food world's most noteworthy magazines, Gastronomica, The Journal of Food and Culture. Together, we celebrate together the publication of Darra's newest book Beyond the North Wind: Russia in Recipes and Lore, and share her remarkable journey to the far northern corners of Russia, to a land of culinary riches and extraordinary history. Darra shares her story with author and chef Rozanne Gold, including how rugelach and cabbage rolls inspired an unimagined career path, how geography and history shape a country's culinary traditions, and how food can be a tool of peace building. And, how often do we get to talk about Horseradish Vodka and Twenty-Minute Pickles, and see buckthorn berries the color of the sun?
