Can anyone recommend any good all-around Russian-English or Russian-French culinary dictionaries, online or in print?

I am trying to decipher some recipes in Maksim Syrnikov's Русская домашняя кухня
, and they are kicking my ass.
Specifically, the general purpose dictionaries I own are fine for vegetable and animal names, and really crappy for cuts of meat, or collective nouns of vegetables: I figured out from context that he meant a "bunch of parsley" or "cloves of garlic", but all I can tell from some of the meat phrases is that there was a shank or a shoulder involved.
I have found the following resources so far, but they are far from exhaustive, and seem to cover more ingredients than methods of cooking. As you might surmise from the use of wayback machine, most of these are not recently maintained, as well...
cuts of beef
, cuts of beef
cuts of veal
cuts of lamb
, cuts of mutton
, cuts of lamb
cuts of pork
Russian food dictionary
(does not cover meat)
other food dictionary, somewhat arbitrary choices
