   Greetings from an internet cafe in Saint Petersburg.  When I signed on, I got another person's AOL mail, then my mail...The Hermitage is badly in need of some 21st century updating.  The stuff from Tajikistan I was told was there _wasn't_ there...I go home on Friday.
   This is the ONLY book on cuisine that's sold, but it's sold EVERYWHERE.  There are pictures from the Podvoriye Restaurant, a wonderful place where my group had delicious bilberry blinis.  The restaurant is near the Pavlovsk Palace (where I saw the "gossipers" vases).
   Some items:

Pg. 29:  Kurnik (Chicken Pie)
Pg. 33:  Kulebyaka with Meat
