Tatiana's Table by Paullina Simons  
I finished this ages ago, but only found time to write a somewhat decent review today. As the cover says it is a compilation of "Tatiana and Alexander's Recipes for Food and Love". It will be somewhat difficult to fully appreciate this book if you have not read the preceding trilogy (The Bronze Horseman, Tatiana and Alexander/The Bridge to Holy Cross, The Summer Garden) but the recipes are simply delicious, ranging from borscht to ice cream to stuffed cabbage, each with a significantly melancholy and bittersweet anecdote from the trilogy to suit. Perhaps prepare a tissue box for the final pages of the book. ;]

Verdict: 4/5
A keeper for Tatiana and Alexander fans who happen to be food buffs, or either.

Re: Hi
Hey there. You could try eBay or an online retailer (like Amazon) but I understand that this particular book is only available in Australia and New Zealand. So you might want to try a retailer from those two countries.

I'd recommend www.dymocks.com.au or www.angusandrobertson.com.au.

Hope this helps somewhat!
