We, Ukrainians, like to eat a lot of good tasty food cooked from fresh products.
Fruits and vegetables, grown under the hot sun in rich Ukrainian soil, have natural taste of real natural products. Traditionally they are saved without chemical processing. So meat has natural taste which differs depending on the animal’s food. For example, in a market a customer can ask a seller, “What kind of beacon is it, potato or bread?” It means that the pig was fed with potato or wheat.
Since old times Ukrainian national cooking has been famous for great variety of tasty and useful dishes. They are good for health as they have almost all the useful vitamins and minerals. For example, the most popular dish called borsch, has up to 20 components. A big plate of good borsch gives a person enough energy for half a working day or so. So many Ukrainians prefer to eat borsch before hard work.
Ukrainian traditional food and drinks are very interesting from medical point of view. Doctors say that a person, who keeps old Ukrainian traditions in meals, gets everything s/he needs for health and fruitful mental and physical work. In our country most of people are sure that Ukrainian traditions in meals are the best for our natural conditions and style of life. That’s why we do not like to change them much. Of course, it doesn’t mean that we don’t eat foreign dishes, but traditional food is preferable in many families.
