Press Release for The New Ukrainian Cookbook

Cookbooks on My Shelf

On last count, my own library of books about food and cookbooks totaled a whopping 283. While, inspired by so many, I do want to recommend a few cookbooks that I really like. First of all, I have to mention my own, "The New Ukrainian Cookbook – A Blend of Tradition and Innovation". It captures the spirit of the Ukrainian kitchen and culture based on the lessons taught to me by my grandmother. If you read it, I am sure you will fall in love with Ukraine all over again, or perhaps, for the first time.

There is Rose Elliot’s book, the most responsible for fine-tuning my vegetarian sensibilities. Both books from Sarah Chase made the list. Her writing is just beautiful and oh so smart. She helped me with more “sophisticated” recipes, especially when I needed catering ideas. Then there is Farmer John. Who wouldn’t love this book? His writing is pleasantly witty and the recipes are simple and straightforward. But, the last, Farm Journal’s Country Cookbook is extra special. First of all, it was our home’s only cookbook when I was growing up. The cover is gone and I am afraid it will completely fall apart any second. Tattered and torn as it is, it’s still my favorite. I have never seen another copy. I am sure, that by today’s standards, it is considered “old-fashioned”, but, I do not care. The recipes stand the test of time and taste, so it is always my first “go-to” when I need inspiration. I just love it!

The rest are genuinely companionable, and if you enjoy them, I’ll be happy. Try the recipes and I know you will win a reputation as a good cook. Have fun and blessings with your meal!
