Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The festivities of the title follow the usual Christian calendar--Easter, Christmas, Pentecost and various saints' days. But Christianity in the 19th-century Ukraine, the focus of Ukrainian-born Farley's well-researched book, coexisted with a rural paganism in which ancestors were appeased and fed at Christmas, river spirits blessed and, in a typical grace, God appeared simply as prima inter pares : "Gracious Lord, sun of truth, stars of beauty, moon of light, wind ferocious, rain bountiful, weather beautiful, ancestors' fathers, we feast with you and greet you in summer." The cuisine, likewise, derives from an agrarian prototype shared by other Eastern Europeans and by the Ashkenazim as well. The foods, like the traditions, are hearty: cabbage rolls meatless or meat-filled; two kinds of borschsic , varying with the season; meat stuffed in casings or covered with aspic; numerous sweet or savory breads, rolls, dumplings, fritters and pancakes, some topped with cabbage or cheese for ordinary meals, others containing a hefty half-pound of butter, a cup of cream and 30 large egg yolks to create a lavish Easter spread.

Review

“Handsomely designed, this is a wonderful book for exploring the holidays of another culture or for wiling away an afternoon in the kitchen mastering the intricacies of korovai or kolach.”
--Wilson Library Bulletin

Used to drive me crazy when my mother cooked Ukrainian foods and never had a recipe. Well, with this book all that has changed. I use it for those recipes where "a little of this and a little of that and then you mix it together" mean little to me. Also has excellent explanations of the different holidays and foods appropriate for the holiday.

For any Ukrainian food/holiday tradition enthusiast tired of struggling through encoded recipes from "babtsia," this is the book for you!!! It provides simple recipes and introductions to the mysterious art of Ukrainian cooking -- "borshcht kvas," "pravdyviy hryby," et. al. -- as well as modern versions of the old traditions. Makes a traditional Ukrainian Christmas a reality.

If you enjoy Ukrainian food, this is the book to get. Most repipes use easy-to-get ingridients. The meals pleased many a Ukrainian homesick for native food.

Festive Ukrainian Cooking has easy to follow recipes. While all of our grandmothers had their own variations, this is a good starting point to get back to our beginnings.

This book is GREAT! It not only gives you the recipes but it also explains all the old time traditions and the current traditions that come from them.
The author has translated recipes into English and modern cooking terms (like using a food processor). Many good cooks can "tweak" the recipes to duplicate how mama or baba specifically made them but this book is a GREAT way to preserve those recipes that they never wrote down! Many thanks to the author.

Format: Hardcover
My Ukrainian grandmother was always such an incredible cook of traditional dishes. However, my mother did not continue in this tradition (she doesn't like to cook much at all) and now that I am an adult I cannot ask my grandmother to show me as she has developed Alzheimer's. The recipes in this book are just like what she used to make and there are many more excellent dishes in addition to those I enjoyed as a kid.

This cookbook is the real deal.
