In Kitchen Stories from the Balkans, Eugenia Maximova lays her eyes on the kitchen interiors from a region she wanted to remain generic : "the balkans".

This book has been designed to slowly reveal the location, the story, and its ending, to the viewer in a cinematographic manner. Time is the key element here...
