BAKE! Book Club: Kachka by Bonnie Frumkin Morales and Deena Prichep

Kachka: A Return to Russian Cooking by Bonnie Frumkin Morales and Deena Prichep

Explore Russia's rich and colorful food culture with this vibrant, lively book! Meet up to talk (and eat!) our way through Kachka: A Return to Russian Cooking with BAKE! and Bakehouse staff. 

Released with much acclaim and winner of Food52’s Piglet competition, Bonnie Frumkin Morales’ debut cookbook is a collection of the recipes that made Kachka, her Portland restaurant famous as well as simple staples and absolute showstoppers. The cookbook's pages are filled with dumplings, meatballs, schnitzel, sweets, and (of course) a shot of vodka or two, so you'll certainly find a new recipe you love! Sign up to bring your favorite dish from the book, or just enjoy a sampling of what we whip up here in our kitchen. We'll be making:

  • Beet Caviar-Stuffed Eggs

  • Shkvarky with Buckwheat Blini and Lingonberry Mustard

  • Sour Cherry Vareniki

This event is perfect for anyone who's looking to expand their cooking repertoire beyond the basics. Never tried Russian cooking? You might be surprised at how much you'll love it! Kachka features vibrant local ingredients, and gives new and exciting twists to some modern cooking trends like fermentation, pickling, and bone broths. A BAKE! instructor will be your guide as you come explore a new (or old) cuisine with other passionate cooks. One thing's for sure: you won't leave hungry. There will be plenty of food to share!
