Travel tales, nostalgic memories flavoured with a dash of irony and 60 recipes from the world’s great cities

Looking for a tasty snack? Which of these would tickle your gastric juices, one of San Francisco’s famous tuna melts or a French assiette de fromages? And if you are feeling gloomy, which would you choose to brighten up your day, a bagna caoda from the Italian Piedmont region or a Berlin currywurst?
A professor of Russian literature describes his travel experiences, especially to street markets and the best eating places.  A gastro-cultural tour of a number of cities – Turin, London, New York, Berlin, San Francisco, Paris, Istanbul – that have changed over the course of the years. Metropolitan glimpses of eccentric personalities, anecdotes of everyday life, nostalgic memories flavoured with a dash of irony and seasoned with recipes of dishes and beverages enjoyed over five decades.
Which was more poignant, the whiff of cinnamon in a San Francisco fog or the smell of coal dust hanging in the air above a Berlin still divided by the Wall? After a day in Paris, should you raise a glass of classic Kir or Kir Royal? Those who lean to the left might prefer to order a communard, those who tend more to the right will ask for a cardinal. Whichever you choose, Cheers!
