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.
