Come join us as Anna Volyshyna, author of “Budmo, Recipes from a Ukranian Kitchen,” gives us a poignant and luscious tale of her homeland’s culture and cuisine. 

Anna will provide a buffet of topics, including Ukraine’s geographical location and how it shaped Ukrainian culture; the role of religious holidays in Ukrainian cooking; and modern versions of traditional Ukranian dishes.

Anna will also talk about Ukraine’s Soviet period and the near destruction of Ukrainian culinary identity; and she will give her heartfelt perspective on her homeland’s current war with Russia. 

BIOGRAPHY: Anna Voloshyna and her husband Alex moved from Kyiv to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2011. Anna is a chef, blogger, and culinary instructor who is particularly known for her wildly successful pop-up dinners and workshops. To learn more about Anna, you can visit or follow her on IG @ annavoloshynacooks.

“BUDMO!  Recipes from a Ukranian Kitchen” will be published on September 6. The book can be ordered from Rizzoli, who will donate 10 percent of all cookbook pre-sales to World Central Kitchen.
