Borsch, Vodka and Tears: Food to Drink With


Borsch, Vodka & Tears - a tucked-away Polish-style vodka bar and restaurant in Melbourne's south - has earned a dedicated following since it opened in 2000. This book is a celebration of the food and passion behind this Melbourne institution. The book is split into three chapters: "Tears", which is the story of how the restaurant came about; "Vodka", which is a definitive guide to Polish vodkas, vodka tasting notes and how to match food with vodka, as well as recipes for the restaurant's most popular cocktails; and "Borsch", which features warming Polish classics, such as cabbage rolls, blintzes, peirogi and borsch, as well as modern dishes, desserts and sharing plates.
