Bortsch, Piroschkis & Vatrushki – Russian Beetroot Soup, Meat Patties & Cream Cheese Tartlets

Recipes from “The Best Recipes In The World” By Edith A Browne & Jessie J Williams published by Newnes in 1935


When I started this blog I decided that I would use only cook books with colour photographies. No black’n’whites what so ever. No chance. Then I found this treasure of a cook book published in 1935 with nothing but black’n’whites. The book shows every sign of having been used and used a lot, but the sixteen illustrations was still in mint condition. So what to do. I chose to meet my initial decision half way and give the photos a rich sepia toning – Ted
