We have collected recipes for the most popular homemade dishes of Soviet times in this book. Chicken broth with homemade noodles still saturates and warms the soul: like twenty years ago, there will be a traditional selection of salads and jellied tongue on the festive table, and certainly homemade cake for tea. And cheesecakes or pancakes on Sunday morning will fill the day with a feeling of coziness and security. Ask any adult resident of our country to name the most important changes in his daily life that have happened over the past twenty years, and one of the first points of his answer will probably be 'our food has become different.' But nobody canceled 'our' honest, familiar homemade food! Because the memory of mother's or grandmother's food is a memory of childhood, of the happiest and most carefree time in life.
