A Book of Favorite Recipes presents many of the food traditions from the kitchens in our large community of Germans from Russia. Some of the women who submitted the recipes were born in the South Russia villages or are first generation German-Russian with recipes used from the Old Country in the Catholic Kutschurgan villages of South Russia (today near Odessa, Ukraine), or in the Catholic village of Krasna, Bessarabia (today Krasnoe, Ukraine). Many recipes trace the original foodways passed down through generations.
