Ukraine has the tastiest food in the world, but it takes so long to prepare, hence it falls out of favour with Chefs and home cooks. It’s food you associate with grandmother preparing for 3 days for the family to devour in 10 minutes (Before exploding lol), then resting then eating (and exploding), then resting then eating … lol
Usually these feasts follow a fasting period for religious holidays like Christmas and Easter, so everybody is ravenous and the food tastes so much better.

Here is an example of the best of Ukraine’s cuisine, as prepared by my wife, her mother, her grandmother and other relatives after various celebrations while touring Ukraine. If you like to holiday and eat, Ukraine is for you!
This is the national dish, Borshch or beetroot (Borak) soup. It should be as deep red as possible and made with your garden vegetables and a little pork meat if you have it and garnished with dill and sour cream. My wife won’t tell me the secret , when I cook it it comes out orange!
Another favorite is the Shasliki. Or skered meats broiled over a hot charcoal barbecue. Usually pork but also chicken and lamb or beef.
The other is Vereniky (to boil little potato and cheese filled wheat flour dumblings) served with sour cream and very sweet crunchy fried onion
And here is a sample of the feasting.
