2.My book “A Firebird Cornucopia of Russian Delights” (in English) is a collection of recipes come from my Russian Grandmother to my Mother and then to me, one can say it’s definitely the collection of recipes of three generations. Indeed, in Russia, from ancient to the present time, food has always been more than a commodity; it is a way in which people celebrate the feast of life and the passing into death. Food is sacred in Orthodoxy, it is blessed before eating, nourishing both the physical and spiritual.

I wrote as well the life story “To the Horizon and Beyond”. Born to the ordinary working family of the Nickolay and Maria Filins, Valentina graduated from Orel University in 1962 with major: Linguistics. All her life she was interested in languages, history, arts. Valentina’s Russian ancestry is part of her cultural and spiritual self and that’s what contributes to the peculiarity of her essay “To the Horizon and Beyond”. Written from her heart, the feelings and sensations in the book reflect what it is to have a Slavic soul: spiritual and mysterious.
