|Your blogger in St. Petersburg, Russia.|
Why Yulinka? It's a nickname and the diminutive version of my Russian name, Yuliya (Юлия). When I was growing up, "Yulinka is cooking" was a family punchline because my kitchen efforts would usually go awry.
Why Russian Food? A) Russian food under-appreciated and yummy and B) I'm kind of sentimental about maintaining and archiving my family's cooking traditions.
I also like to explore food from the former Soviet republics, especially Uzbekistan, Armenia and Georgia. My unofficial goal is to cook my way through Anya von Bremzen's excellent Russian/Soviet cookbook Please to the Table.
Also blogging: Soviet stuff, Milwaukee-area shops, restaurants, farmers' markets and farms, product reviews, food news and odds and ends.
Greatest Hits: A Russia and Estonia travelogue. How to make tvorog (Russian farmer's cheese). On borsch. A Russian New Year's and herring in a fur coat.
