Descrizione

People have gathered around the table to partake in a hearty meal and relish in each other’s company for centuries. Decisions have taken place around the table. Arguments have been won or lost while dinner was being served. Kitchen And Socialism: A Culinary Guide Through Lenin’s Life.
aims to do just that and more.
Part recipe book, part biography, this unique recipe book offers insight into the life of Vladimir Lenin, a Russian revolutionary, politician, and political theorist. Taking snippets from his life, this book is intended to spark conversation in this heated political climate and feed not only the mind, but the belly.
Picture this; your friends and family have gathered for what would otherwise be remembered for hours spent away from their devices, but by gathering around, sharing a meal from this unique collection of Lenin-era foods and discussing what’s taking place in our current political climate, you as the host, have led your own revolution of sorts. You’ve created a safe and interesting environment to not only share a plate of delicious food, but to share in a hearty discussion.
Why not enjoy a meal straight from a chapter entitled Socialism as a Starter and use that as the impetus for a discussion about the irony of two men, different eras, both touting idealistic ideas? Or from The Taste of Power chapter, you might find a snippet about what it means to be in full control of a country while eating a scrumptious meal. Who knows! The possibilities are endless when you mix family, friends, reverie, delicious food and a healthy dose of tongue and cheek fun. Gather around, invite your friends, and let the conversation begin!

She was born and raised in a Protestant community, so she preferred more European and western German traditions. This was the first sign of conflicting interests for the future leader of socialists and proletarians. Let’s say your dad prefers pearl barley and ice-cold water, while Mrs. Ulianov serves hard-boiled eggs and hot tea. Which would you pick? (Neither, we would bet.)
