Ukrainian home cuisine is widely known and stands out for its originality among cuisines of other Slavic nations. And such dishes as borsch and varenyky have firmly entered the menu of international cuisines far beyond the borders of our country.
The process of food cooking in Ukraine has always been practicability-oriented, often both breakfast, lunch and dinner are cooked into one oven. That was the oven which helped vegetables to retain all important vitamins and minerals during thermal processing.
During the lifetime the Ukrainian home cooking has passed a long and very interesting way from simple meals to compound dishes cooked in several ways. The neighboring countries, as well as numerous wars with other nations, who brought to the territory of Ukraine the features of their cuisine had significantly influenced the national cuisine of Ukraine. Ukrainian cuisine in Kiev, as well as throughout the Central part of Ukraine has also been influenced by Russia. However, this had not changed Ukrainian cuisine, but rather gave it its own unique style. Thus it acquired its own regional features. There are dishes that are typical only for western Ukrainian area or preferred exclusively within its eastern regions.
