Join Katrina Kollegaeva from Russian Revels for an illustrated talk devoted to one of the most successful 19th and early 20th-century Russian cookbooks, A Gift to Young Housewives, more commonly know as "Molokhovets". Compiled by Elena Ivanovna Molokhovets in 1861, this cookbook has been continually revised: from its first edition at the time of the emancipation of the serfs to the Communist Revolution of 1917. The book was well known in Russian households during its publication and for decades to follow. It has been republished in 2003. "Molokhovets" inspired canapes and a glass of wine are included in the ticket price.
