art cookbook, part artbook, part migrant memoir, Liza’s Kitchen: Eastern European Recipes by a Melbourne Artist is an intimate collection of recipes and artwork from Russian-born, Melbourne-based artist Elizaveta Maltseva.

Food, family and culture intertwine in this series of recipes collected and recreated for the Australian kitchen. Punctuated with anecdotes of Maltseva’s journey to make these dishes her own and artwork throughout curated from her practice, this book offers you bread, salt and vodka, and a personal seat at a multicultural table.
