It’s all about extremely fat and therefore enormously tasty foods. Various pastries, soups, meat dishes and unexpected mixture of tastes – you may find all these in Ukrainian cuisine.

The famous Russian beetroot soup, borsch, actually comes from Ukrainian cuisine. Ukrainian borsch is a little bit different than the Russian one, but you will hardly notice. Anyways – it rocks.

1. Borscht

Borsch, Borshch, Borsht, Bortsch (Polish) (Russian)

Borscht is a tart soup popular in several East European cuisines, including Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, Belarusian, Romanian, Lithuanian and Ashkenazi Jewish. The variety most commonly associated with the name in English is of Ukrainian origin and includes beetroots as one of the main ingredients, which gives the dish a distinctive red color. It shares the name, however, with a wide selection of sour-tasting soups without beetroots, such as sorrel-based green borscht, rye-based white borscht, cabbage borscht. The dominant tastes in borscht are sweet and sour. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borscht
