    -Top Three Ukrainian Cookbook & Cultural Book

    Click on "Look Inside" at top of book cover photo for contents.

    "Your book has us all laughing hysterically & uncontrollably! Daikoyu=thank you!"~Capital Ukrainian Festival, Ottawa

    "Baba's Kitchen is a good companion to Savella Stechishin's book [Traditional Ukrainian Cookery]. We will be presenting copies as Awards at our year end dinner.." ~ Los Angeles Ukrainian Cultural Centre

    In a rollicking, entertaining read, Baba's Kitchen will lead you into the complex soul of Eastern Europe's Indigenous people.

    Ukrainian-Canadian Raisa Stone spent decades collecting outrageous stories and life advice, plus 200 recipes and home remedies from survivors of Soviet and Nazi terror---including her family. Raisa's narrator, Baba,is a composite of these invincible souls.

    Ukraine has been continuously inhabited by civilized, immensely inventive people for 44,000 years.

    For excerpts, video/audio clips and more, visit:

    Ukrainians: first tamed horses, invented pants (for riding!), the bow and arrow, built homes from mammoth bone & pyramids older than Egypt's, & created Europe's first democratic constitution.

    Shamanic practices that sparked the original werewolf and Amazon legends (the latter documented by Greek physician Hippocrates) combine with recipes & customs reaching back to the Neolithic era.


    Compared to erotic games in the village bath & shoplifting live turkeys in your bloomers, immigrant life is beyond boring. So Baba (Grandma) is brewing up Old Country customs in her kitchen.

    She'll teach you to make delicious Ukrainian dishes (plus simple folk remedies) the traditional & The Lazy Way, sabotage frenemies with garlic, & utter chilling Slavic curses such as, "May you be kicked by a duck!"

    Between tales of magical encounters with Nature spirits & steaming bowls of borshch is the true confession of the author's elderly neighbour: she murdered her abusive husband.

    Imagine a mouth watering Honey Onion Sauce that recalls competing with cave bears and wild bees, and the seductive magic of preparing sweet delights for the Apple Harvest Blessing.

    200 traditional Ukrainian recipes and home remedies, taught step by step as if grandma were at your side. In black & white text:

    • Borshch, including Vegetarian
    • Holubtsi (Cabbage Rolls)
    • Varenyky (Perogies)
    • Honey Cake
    • Makivnyk
    • Traditional Holiday recipes for Easter & Christmas
    • Kolach: Circle of Life Bread

    *Warning: 18+ Restricted*

    Wicked acts with honey and raspberries, pirates, cowboys, Kozaks, bald men, bad boys and mounted police officers.

    You'll laugh, you'll cry!


    "I enjoy reading the stories as well as learning authentic Ukrainian dishes to cook for my family. I will be sharing these recipes with my daughters and teaching them how to cook too! A lovely book with something for everyone. You feel like Baba is turning the pages with you!"~Mattie Romanyshyn, Belfield, South Dakota

    "Hilarious book - made me laugh so much. Great Ukrainian recipes which reminded me of my Mum's cooking. Love the book."~Luba Ryder

    "I found many recipes that I had been searching for since my time in the Carpathians in 2010. The one I looked for the most was a mushroom soup that to my pleasant surprise was here. I have cooked for friends and family since I recieved the book and 4 people have loved it so much they have ordered copies of their own. The humor is Ukrainian and part of what made me fall in love with Ukraine."~Roberto Marquez, New Mexico

    Ukrainian Cuisine
    Among the first impressions for all the visitors who come to Ukraine is its national food. Ukrainian cuisine is diverse and unique. It has a rich history and is very popular in Slavic countries. There are a lot of tasty dishes in Ukrainian cuisine but the most famous one is perhaps the borscht. It is a vegetable soup, made of beets, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes. They also add garlic, onion, dill and meat. There are many varieties of this dish. Every housewife in Ukraine has her own recipe of borscht. Next on the list is the vinegret salad – salad of beetroot with sunflower oil and vinegar. People also add cooked and chopped potatoes, sauerkraut or pickles, onions, herbs and carrots. Breads and wheat products are also important for Ukrainians. For example, they cook traditional wedding bread called “Korovai”, which is a symbol of national hospitality. Easter cake is known as “Paska”. The recipe of paska varies from place to place, but it usually includes milk, butter, eggs, sugar and raisins. Traditional Ukrainian drink is uzvar – compote, made of dried apples and pears. Those, who like fish, would appreciate ukha. It’s a clear soup, made from various types of fish, for example, bream, catfish or ruff. For the main course Ukrainian guests especially like varenyky or pirohi. They are small pastries or dumplings, which can be stuffed with mashed potatoes, cheese, cherries or strawberries. Of course, everyone knows about Ukrainian salo. Nobody leaves Ukraine not having tried one.

    Christmas Bread with Honey p. 114

    Christmas bread is usually made with buckwheat honey, which gives it its strong taste and dark color. This recipe makes one large loaf.
    2 1/2 cups honey
    8 eggs (at room temperature)
    3/4 stick butter, softened
    2 cups sugar
    6 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 tablespoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    grated peel and juice of 1 orange
    1 cup strong, black coffee
    1 cup sour cream
    1 cup walnuts (optional)

    In a small saucepan, heat honey to boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Separate eggs, reserving the whites. Beat the yolks and butter together until fluffy. Add the cooled honey and sugar and continue beating. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the honey mixture. Add the orange peel and juice, coffee, and sour cream. Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into the batter a little at a time. Stir in the nuts. Pour into a greased and floured bread pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Do not open the oven door during the first half of baking. Cool on wire racks. The bread may be wrapped in aluminum foil and stored for several weeks.
