Anya von Bremzen: Food, Family, and History in the USSR

Please join us for a public lecture by Anya von Bremzen, author of Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing. One of the most accomplished food writers of her generation, von Bremzen has won three James Beard awards. She is also a contributing editor at Travel + Leisure Magazine, the author of five acclaimed cookbooks and a regular contributor to Food & Wine and Saveur. She has written for The New Yorker, Departures and The Los Angeles Times. The New York Times describes von Bremzen's latest book, Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking, as "an ambitious food memoir that is also a meticulously researched history of the Soviet Union.” In her talk, von Bremzen will explore the complex and fascinating connection between history, memoir and food spanning the entire Soviet century. This event is supported by the Russian Studies Department, the Public Lectures Committee, the Dean Rusk International Studies Program and the History Department.
