Written in 1973, A Russian Jew Cooks in Peru chronicles the culinary impact when an immigrant population must adapt to their new home. During the 20s and 30s many Russian born Jewish people moved to Peru, among them, the parents of Ms. Autumn. The recipes are unique combinations such as Matzo meal Bocaditos and Pecante de Cuy (prepared with Rabit). The recipes are not only original but beautifully hand lettered and illustrated.
