    ...it's an interesting snapshot of old country cooking. If you want to learn about nose-to-tail cooking before it became trendy, this is a good primer.

Publishers Text

The first of its kind in Canada, Traditional Ukrainian Cookery preserves for posterity the Ukrainian way of cooking. Based largely on a number of selected recipes from various Ukrainian cookbooks published in Western Ukraine before the Second World War, several recipes have been contributed by a representative group of Ukrainian-Canadian homemakers.

As author and culinary artist Stechishin states in her Introduction: "the style of this book departs somewhat from the standard way of writing a cookbook. Along with the old-world recipes brought up-to-date, there is a brief portrayal of a way of life of the Ukrainian people, giving a chronicle of customs, traditions and ceremonies."

In addition to recipes featured specifically for Christmas, New Year, Jordan holidays, and Easter, the book includes appetizers, soups, soup accompaniments, meat, poultry and game, fish, stuffings, sauces, eggs and cheese, griddle cakes, starchy foods (lokshyna, varenyky [pyrohy], holubtsi, and kasha), vegetables, salads, salad dressings, desserts, dessert sauces, breads and bread pastries, tort fillings and icings, confections, preserves and pickles. Also included are common food equivalents and translating foreign measurements. This cookery is a virtual encyclopedia of gastronomy and culinary arts.
