"Celebrate the rich culture of Ukrainian cuisine with these traditional Eastern European recipes infused with a fresh, contemporary approach for today's home kitchen, from one of today's most exciting young chefs of Ukrainian cuisine. With its emphasis on fresh ingredients, time-honored heritage, and warm hospitality, Eastern European cuisine is having a culinary moment, in addition to Ukraine being of great current interest. Meaning "cheers!" in Ukrainian, Budmo! is the first cookbook to celebrate classic Eastern European recipes with a modern, creative twist. Presented by Ukrainian-born, California-based chef, blogger, and culinary instructor Anna Voloshyna, bright flavors and vibrant ingredients sing from each pl...ate. A gorgeous magenta pkhali comes alive with roasted beets and a tangy pomegranate molasses. Borscht is reinvented with green sorrels and semi-soft eggs. And Voloshyna even shares a personal recipe for her Ukrainian grandmother's duck--roasted to a delicious crispy-brown perfection. These are the dishes that are perfect for gathering your favorite people with, and each one is bound to uncover the mouthwatering flavors and traditions of this endlessly fascinating part of the world."--provided by publisher.

Review by Library Journal Review

At the age of 21, Voloshyna emigrated from Ukraine to the United States, where she became a food stylist and photographer and started pop-up dinners to share food traditions from her childhood. The wild success of her cooking led to this debut cookbook, which is an informative and delicious glimpse into her culinary memories. It is rich with history and descriptions of present-day culture that define the influences on Ukraine and its Eastern European neighbors. Dishes are traditional and cover a variety of soups, kashas, and mains as well as breads, crepes, and dumplings. The introductions to each include recipe pairings, food origins, and customs surrounding the dish. Helpful notes have variations and tips to make recipes practical for weeknight preparation. Voloshyna also includes a language primer and a list of her pantry staples. Her photographs convey the rustic warmth and beauty of her Ukrainian cooking. VERDICT This timely cookbook is strongly recommended and provides a balance of the cultural history of Ukraine and Eastern Europe with the warmth and love found in Voloshyna's delicious recipes.--Sarah Tansley
