Short Introduction to History of Ukrainian cuisine
Ukraine is one of the biggest countries in Europe. Its territory has rich soil and perfect climate for growing crops and vegetables. Inspired by its agriculture roots, Ukrainian dishes are hearty and utilize the many crops grown there. Most Ukrainian dishes are fairly simple to make but are delicious and comforting. The recipes Ukrainians make today have barely changed from when they were first were passed down.
Ukrainians value hospitality, that’s why hosts often greet their guests with loaf of bread and salt as a way to welcome them. The important fact is also that about 85% of Ukrainians are Christians, therefore, celebrating Easter and Christmas are the really great occasions to cook something special.
