Best Foods to try in Ukraine
What foods do you know from Ukrainian cuisine? Is it the borshch that first pops up in your head? No doubt, it is the main representative of Ukrainian culinary talents abroad, beside pierogi or varenyky, horilka and uzvar. However, Ukrainian cuisine extends much farther than that! Quite a common are varenyky or more commonly known as pierogi that are bread to most other nations. Combined with the hot plate of borshch, those two are Ukrainians’ food of choice in sickness and in health. One more tasty dish in Ukrainian menu is banosh. This traditional food of highland shepherds is essentially corn flour, cooked in sour cream, with the tasty additions of brynza – local salty sheep cheese, wild white mushrooms (preferably hand-picked from the nearest forest!) and shkvarky (scrunchy bits of pork fat). Uzvar is traditional Ukrainian drink of choice! This refreshing beverage is actually a compote, made out of dried fruits. But whether you want to try borshch, or yearn for a plateful of yummy varenyky, keep in mind to skip all the fancy restaurants, and loud coffeeshops.
