More About the Author

Most people never embark on a journey searching for truth, beauty, equality, and social justice. For me there has been no choice. During my youth, I was preoccupied with the quest for truth and beauty. As a photographer and writer, exploring visual truth and capturing beauty were my primary goals. I am a publisher and distributor for my company, Penfield Books. For more information, visit us at: www.penfieldbooks.com

I also have a photography business. For more information visit: http://joanliffringzugbourret.com/

In 2011, I published my autobiography of over 60 years of photography. I have photographed, Presidents, politicians, writers, artists, and many Eastern Iowans. My work has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cedar Rapids Art Museum. The complete autobiography is called, "Pictures and People: A Search for Visual Truth and Social Justice."

NEW in the series of Stocking Stuffer cookbooks, in the popular recipe-card file size Stocking Stuffer format, this book represents Ukrainian cooking as one of the best homestyle cuisines of the world - basic, fresh, wholesome and nutritious, yet still possessing a taste as rich as the black soil itself.
Ukrainian food is not often found in restaurants, for it is a style of cooking best meant for families, for homecomings, and for holidays. The majority of recipes in this book come from Ukrainian-American homes, where Joanne Asala, who collected the recipes, shared the food and native traditions.
One-hundred-sixty pages include recipes for daily fare and festive celebrations. Notes and menus for traditional observances of Christmas, Easter, and the wedding feast are included with the recipes. Among these are Flummery, Kutia, one of the most sacred of ritual dishes; Easter Bread, Paska, and Honey Nut Cake for weddings.
On the cover is a photo of a candelabra representing the trident, a traditional symbol of Ukraine. Examples of the exquisite, symbolic folk art, especially egg design, krashanky, are found throughout the book with reference to the significance of the various designs.
Excellent for personal collections, as well as a thoughtful gift and memento.

I'm always on the hunt for authentic cookbooks and the spiral ethnic cookbooks from Penfield Press of Iowa City, IA are the best buy around.

It's true that big things come in small packages. These books are packed with tons of history and, best of all, delicious recipes that are easy to prepare, don't take too much time to cook, and won't have you searching everywhere and spending a fortune for the ingredients. The history sprinkled throughout the book gave a good background to the food being prepared and enriched the cooking experience for me.

The first things I made from this book were two drinks: Cherry Vodka and Medivka (Honey Liqueur). Although I don't drink, I had a sip of each and boy were they good. (Although the cherry vodka has to ferment for 2 weeks, the wait is definitely worth it). I also made the Turkey Breast with Cherry Sauce and my mouth watered during the entire meal.

I've bought and made dishes from the Dutch, Danish, and Irish cookbooks of the same series and the final product will turn out an authentic ethnic dish without the gourmet prices for the book or the ingredients.

Highly recommended.

I love the spiral binding. It makes this perfect for actually cooking & reading the recipe. The small size is fun too. It's a good basic Ukrainian cookbook. Of course, not all the recipes I remember are in here, but there's a pretty good mix of recipes.

I think it is a great book to learn to cook from and a good guide for people who just started to cook or the people who are originally from Ukraine and want to keep on cooking!

A cook's/chef's cornucopia of culinary desires (meals that are nutritious, delicious, easily prepared, reasonably priced, and savored by seasoned gourmets, bon vivants, and munchkins of all sizes and shapes) will be a potential possibility when you open the cover of Ukrainian Recipes and delve into the myriad menus and recipes. Albeit, not what you'd consider to be a conventional cookbook, Ukrainian Recipes is a cookery/collection of Ukrainian recipes presented à la modern style on red spiral-bound index cards with front and back cards laminated.

The cover color red is picked up as a border around the title, Ukrainian Recipes, which appears to the right of a photo of a candelabrum from Ukraine; the bottom of the border displays a red Ukrainian embroidery design. Also laminated, the back cover continues coloring red; only this time, the same border as on the front is enhanced by three red Ukrainian pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs). To the right, outside the border, repeated in red, is shown the coat of arms of Ukraine, the tryzub (trident); there's an explanation of the tryzub on page 81 of the booklet (Desserts section). For a detailed history and explanation of the tryzub, visit the Encyclopedia of Ukraine, which states, in part, that the Ukrainian tryzub is "a gold trident on an azure background."

Visual embellishments via folk art and egg designs throughout the booklet were provided by Luba Perchyshyn of the Ukrainian Gift Shop, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ms. Perchyshyn is very well known and much respected in the Ukrainian community.
