Praise For Festive Ukrainian Cooking

“Handsomely designed, this is a wonderful book for exploring the holidays of another culture or for wiling away an afternoon in the kitchen mastering the intricacies of korovai or kolach.” Wilson Library Bulletin

“The foods, like the traditions, are hearty: cabbage rolls, meatless or meat-filled; two kinds of borschsic, varying with the season; meat stuffed in casings or covered with aspic; numerous sweet or savory breads, rolls, dumplings, fritters and pancakes, some topped with cabbage or cheese for ordinary meals, others containing a hefty half-pound of butter, a cup of cream and thirty large egg yolks to create a lavish Easter spread.” Publishers Weekly
