Food that Tchaikovsky enjoyed

I’ve been curious for a long time about the food that T. enjoyed. I know that some people said he was very undemanding when it came to what he ate, but I also know that his favorite dish was the macaroni at Leiner’s. Is there any chance that some of the recipes of food he liked – especially the macaroni - still exist?

One Russian dish that Tchaikovsky mentions in a few of his letters, at least during his Moscow years in the 1870s, and which he seems to have liked, is kulebyaka, a kind of pie filled with fish and rice. Here is one recipe: 

It looks quite complicated to prepare!
