    Top Three Ukrainian Cookbook & Cultural Book of 2016

    Click on "Look Inside" at top of book.

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

    Ukrainian-Canadian Raisa Marika Stohyn spent decades collecting outrageous stories and 190 Eastern European recipes 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. Be prepared for fish net, scuba divers, body painting, eye rolling & squealing.

    You'll laugh, you'll scream. By the time Baba is through, you'll wet someone else's pants!


    "Unique, funny, compelling & totally original. Baba is an amazing woman."~Jill McCaw, McCaw Media

    "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 since my first visit there."~Roberto Marquez, New Mexico

    Product Description:

    For more than fifty years, customers have crowded into Veselka, a cozy Ukrainian coffee shop in New York City's East Village, to enjoy pierogi, borscht, goulash, and many other unpretentious favorites. Veselka (rainbow in Ukrainian) has grown from a simple newsstand serving soup and sandwiches into a twenty-four-hour gathering place, without ever leaving its original location on the corner of East Ninth Street and Second Avenue. Veselka is, quite simply, an institution.

    The Veselka Cookbook contains more than 150 recipes, covering everything from Ukrainian classics (potato pierogi, five kinds of borscht, grilled kielbasa, and poppy seed cake) to dozens of different sandwiches, to breakfast fare (including Veselka's renowned pancakes), to the many elements of a traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve feast.

    Veselka owner Tom Birchard shares stories about Veselka's celebrity customers, the local artists who have adopted it as a second home, and the restaurant's other lesser-known, but no less important, longtime fans, and he offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to serve five thousand gallons of borscht a year and to craft three thousand pierogi daily---all by hand.

    The Veselka Cookbook will delight anyone with an interest in Ukrainian culture, New York City's vibrant downtown, and the pleasures of simple, good food.
