Food and Meals.

The usual meals of Ukrainian people are breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper. Breakfast is the first meal of the day, and we generally have it at about 8 o’clock in the morning. Lunch is a light meal usually in the middle of the day. Dinner is the chief and the most substantial meal of the day. It is not served at a definite moment in our country. As a rule, businessman finds it impossible to come home for lunch or dinner and so he goes to a canteen or a refreshment room or has a bite at his place of employment.

Breakfast usually consists of a cup of tea, coffee or milk, some sandwiches, boiled or fried eggs. For a change, we can have cold ham or porridge with milk or cream and sugar.

Lunch is usually a cold meal with cold meat, sausage or fish, potatoes and vegetables. Then comes coffee or tea with rolls or cakes.

Dinner is the principal meal of the day. As a rule, a cold dish or an appetizer opens the dinner. It may include vegetable salad, pickles, herring, etc. for the first course we can have chicken broth, noodle soup, vegetable soup, cabbage soup, pea soup or Ukrainian borsch. For the second course you may enjoy eating mashed or fried potatoes with roast chicken or meat; for a change you may have buckwheat porridge or macaroni with chops or cutlets followed by dessert. For dessert you may have various home-made tarts,” kissel” or stewed fruit.

In the evening we have much simpler supper—an omlette or sausages, sometimes bacon and eggs and sometimes just bread and cheese, a cup of cocoa or tea with a slice of lemon, jam or home-made pastry and fruit.

And we must always remember that food should be wholesome and plentiful, and vitamins in food are of great importance. The same dishes should not be served several days running as variety is an important element of a rational diet.



1. What are your meal-times?

2. Is your breakfast light or substantial?

3. Does your dinner consist of two or three courses? What kind of soup do you prefer?

4. What is your favorite dish? Are you a great or a poor eater?

5. What kind of appetizers do you prefer?

Ukrainian Cooking and Food.

Ukrainian cooking is varied, rich and nourishing. Its development was influenced by the development of material culture: geographical and climatic conditions, plant cultivation and animal domestication, cultural influences and economic relations with other countries.

Since ancient times Ukrainians have led a settled style of life based on farming. Archaeological evidence shows that wheat, barley and millet were grown in Ukraine 3000 years ago. Rye was introduced about 2000 years ago, and then buckwheat was imported from Asia in the 11th century. Cattle, sheep, hogs and poultry were raised at that time too. Beekeeping, hunting and fishing were practised.

Since long ago bread has had a special, primary position in the great variety of Ukrainian food. Besides ordinary bread Ukrainians bake various ritual types of bread. Ukrainian bread in its multiform has become quite famous. For the common people bread is an object of reverence. Bread is used to bring divine blessings to the commencement of every task, marriage ceremony, birth of a child and move to a new home. As a sign of hospitality, guests of honour are greeted with a ceremonial offering of bread and salt.

Cooked cereals – wheat, barley, buckwheat, millet, or corn grits – are often served in Ukrainian homes.

Favorite dishes made of flour are dumplings and “varenyky” with various types of fillings: cottage cheese, cabbage, potatoes, meat, buckwheat, berries.

Potato is the most commonly used vegetable in Ukrainian cooking. It is a necessary component of all soups, particularly borsch and cabbage soup. Mashed potatoes, boiled or fried potatoes are served with meat, fish, cheese, cabbage, mushrooms. Potato pancakes are served with sour cream.

Another important element in Ukrainian cuisine is cabbage: for making cabbage soup and cabbage rolls (holubtsi), which are filled with buckwheat, rice or meat. Other vegetables such as onions, garlic, carrots, turnips are usually eaten raw. Cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes and beets are pickled for winter.

According to the Ukrainian tradition soup or borsch must be served as a first course for dinner. Various soups are popular, but borsch remains the favourite. It is made of vegetables, among which beets and cabbage are predominant.

Food made of diary products and eggs have long been a part of Ukrainian cooking.

Fruit and berries when in season are eaten fresh. Some fruit are prepared for winter by drying or preserving.
