    Cucumber & Avocado Yoghurt Salad

    One day I added fresh Cucumber and Avocato to leftover Tzatziki (Yoghurt & Cucumber Dip), and that was the beginning of this salad. You don’t need Tzatziki. You need the same ingredients to make Tzatziki, and combine them in a different way. This salad is absolutely quick and easy to make. I recommend to cut …

  • Dough Pizza & Flammkuchen

    Smoked Salmon Flammkuchen

    Flammkuchen (OR Flammekueche) is not well-known in Australia. Do you know it? I am a big fan of Flammkuchen. Probably I like it more than Italian Pizza and I make it often. I heard that there are some regional variations, but most commonly Sour Cream is used. It’s surprisingly easy to make and it is …

  • Mushrooms Spaghetti & Pasta

    Ukrainian Dumplings with Bacon & Mushrooms

    I often cook similar dishes using Gnocchi. ‘Gnocchi & Mushrooms In Butter Soy Sauce’ is my favourite. However, Gnocchi is not so quick & easy to make as Boiled Potatoes are the main ingredient. These Ukrainian Dumplings have harder texture than Gnocchi as they are made without Potato, and Dumplings are much easier and quicker …

    Ukrainian Cucumber & Egg Salad

    There are many restaurants in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city, but many Japanese tourists recommend a restaurant called ‘Puzata Hata’. They say ‘Puzata Hata’ offers many Ukrainian dishes at very reasonable prices, and it is easy to choose the dishes as you don’t need to worry about language difficulties at all. That sounds really good to …

    I was looking at many beautiful places in Ukraine on the internet, and found a place called ‘Yaremche’. I was dreaming of visiting this beautiful place and I checked some restaurants and cafes in the city as I have strong interests in those places. There is a small eatery called ‘Cafe Kolomyika’ and it’s got …

    ‘Varenyky’ Ukrainian Dumplings with Mashed Potato Filling

    Several years ago, I came across ‘Pierogi’, Polish dumplings, at a local farmer’s market and I instantly fell in love with them. Similar foods can be found in many different countries. Japan has ‘Gyoza’. Italy has ‘Ravioli’ and ‘Tortellini’. Ukraine has ‘Varenyky’. A variety of fillings can be used for ‘Varenyky’. My favourite is definitely …

    The most famous Ukrainian dish is definitely ‘Borscht’. There are many variations as it is cooked in many different countries. They say every region in Ukraine has its own ‘Borscht’. This soup is so famous and even I often cook it in Melbourne, Australia, and I am Japanese. Today I served ‘Borscht’ with ‘Pampushky’, Ukrainian …

    ‘Pampushky’ Ukrainian Bread Rolls

    What a cute name ‘Pampushky’ is for these Ukrainian bread rolls! The singular form is ‘Pampushka’ and that sounds even cuter. ‘Pampushky’ have similar texture to Doughnuts, and they can be baked or fried. The world famous Ukrainian Soup ‘Borscht’ is often served with ‘Pampushky’ with ‘Garlic & Dill Oil’. If you like Garlic Bread …

I am confident this salad is quite close to the ‘Cucumber & Radish Salad’ that many Ukrainian people make. It is very refreshing and delicious. Makes 4 …

    Ukrainian Beetroot & Potato Salad

    When I make Beetroot & Potato Salad, I usually add Sour Cream and Japanese Mayonnaise. Today I decided to use vinaigrette to make this Ukrainian inspired salad, but this is my super easy version. I thought the brine in the jar of Dill Pickles can be used as vinaigrette, so I used it to season …
