Learn how to make the dishes served during a traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve (Svyat Vecheer) meal. This one-of-a-kind instructional cooking DVD shows you, step-by-step, how to make the most popular recipes using timesaving, modern conveniences!
As with many cultures, much of the Ukrainian culture is preserved through the observance of holiday food, ritual, and custom. Because cooking and baking can be rather complicated, following recipes in a cookbook alone is often not enough - visual depiction always helps.
There is no one way to prepare the Ukrainian Christmas Eve meal; there are as many recipes and methods for making Borshch, Varenyky and Holubtsee, as there are Ukrainian grandmothers!
Learn how to make the "must have" Christmas Eve recipes, which have been modified wherever possible for busy, modern cooks using today's modern kitchens. Some dishes are prepared in the traditional way, such as the Kutia (honey-sweetened wheat dish). Others are prepared in timesaving ways, like the dough for Varenyky (potato- or cabbage-filled dumplings), Ushka (mushroom-filled dumplings), Borshch (beet soup), Holubtsee (stuffed cabbage rolls), Strutslia (braided Christmas bread), and Fish in Aspic.
Whether you're familiar with Ukrainian Christmas Eve dishes—or trying them for the first time—this DVD is a must!
