A Taste of Home: A North Ossetian New Year’s Eve Feast
Jenny Holm is a Washington, DC–based writer and recipe developer who focuses primarily on the foods of the former Soviet Union. She spent a year studying local and imported culinary traditions as a Fulbright scholar in Krasnodar, Russia, where she developed a fierce affection for pickled tomatoes, persimmons, and lard. Later, she taught English in Batumi, Georgia, in exchange for lessons in wine making, cheesebread baking, and feasting. She is currently working on a book of stories and recipes from the Caucasus region.
