How to: Cook Ukrainian Food

January 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Fun fact: January is the month that Ukrainians celebrate both Christmas and New Years, so what better way to celebrate than with some food? Join us in our first event of NAITSA’s Cultural Week, kicking it off with a How to: Cook Ukrainian Food! We will be making a traditional dish called “Borscht”, which is a delicious and healthy soup made with beets and veggies. The version that will be taught during this class is from the Lviv region in Ukraine and will be vegetarian. To compliment the soup, we will be teaching you guys how to make traditional bread designs such as doves and braids.

During the course of the cooking, our instructors will be sharing with you some fun facts about Ukraine, including traditions, the regions, and the community. If you have anything you would like to share about this too, we would love to hear it. We hope to see you there!
