    -Ukrainian Canadian Congress Special Pick Top 3 Ukrainian Cookbook & Cultural Book for the past two years

    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 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! A lovely book with something for everyone. You feel like Baba is turning the pages with you!"~Mattie Romanyshyn, Belfield, South Dakota

    "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 received 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

    Product Description:
    Ukrainian culture is an authentic mixture of ancient Greek traditions, gorgeous Eastern streams and strong Western accents. Due to the unique geographic position, Ukraine has observed different tribes and nations trying to suggest or sometimes even impose their routines on these lands. But never on Earth have they succeeded. Either heydays or hard times – no matter – Ukrainian nation always keeps its features, spreading nevertheless an honorable attitude to all the rest.

    So it is no wonder we want to share the unique time and gourmand proven 32 recipes of Ukrainian Pierogi with the others. This simple and universal national dish could be easily adoptable on any kitchen, to any taste.

And at the same time apart from being an ethnic dive into Ukrainian cuisine, you’ll be really surprised how tasty and up-to-date the recipes are. You’ll fall in love and will be addicted to cooking them again and again.

    This book could be a great present, unexpected souvenir or a proper investment in your personal cooking skills and knowledge.

    All the recipes were created and vitally tested by chef Aleksey Shvets. The shots are styles and performed by Aleksandr Slyadnev, one of the best food-photographer of the world and author of Food’n’Chef Project. With the team of inspired colleagues they have re-invented the national cuisine literature to become a piece of style and honor. And this is just the beginning.
