    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 …

    Canned Salmon & Egg Pie

    I believe this ‘Canned Salmon & Egg Pie’ tastes better than the pricey Salmon Pie I had at a local cafe. This type of pies are easy to make. You don’t need a pie dish. Using a Canned Salmon and store-bought Frozen Puff Pastry, you would be surprised at how easy it is to make …

    Cabbage Rolls

    Cabbage Rolls are much easier to prepare than you think, though you need large Cabbage leaves. I often use uncooked Sausages for the stuffing, but today I made the stuffing using Pork Mince. I heard that Ukrainian people often add Cooked Rice to the mixture, so I added 1 cupful of Cooked Rice. I think …

    Ukrainian Inspired Cabbage Pancakes

    Japan has the world-famous Cabbage Pancakes ‘Okonomiyaki’. Other countries have their own Cabbage Pancakes. This is my ‘Ukrainian inspired Cabbage Pancakes’. It seems Ukrainian people stew the shredded Cabbage before mixing it with other ingredients. I used my favourite method to wilt the shredded Cabbage. I added Sour Cream as I strongly believe Ukrainians love …

    Pumpkin & Salami Cheese Bake

    Leftover Salami and Sour Cream, that’s what I wanted to use up today. I instantly thought of cooking ‘Hungarian Salami, Boiled Eggs & Potato Sour Cream Bake’, but I decided to use Pumpkin. I didn’t want to bother making Boiled Eggs. So, what I did was very simple as you can read below. The result …

    Mushroom Stuffed Meat Rolls

    Thinly sliced Pork and Beef are commonly available in Japan, and it would be easy to prepare this Ukrainian inspired dish. However, here in Melbourne where I live, thinly sliced Pork and Beef are not easy to find. Some Asian grocery stores sell them, but you need to be careful because those thinly sliced Pork …

    Ukrainian Cabbage, Peas & Sausage Salad

    This salad is known as ‘Dniester’ Salad in Ukraine. Is that true? Smoked Sausage is used for this salad, but it is impossible for me to find Ukrainian Smoked Sausage. I heard that Polish ‘Kielbasa’ is similar to Ukrainian Smoked Sausage. If you can find ‘Kielbasa’, you may wish to try it. For most Australians, …

    Azuki & Sweet Potato Sour Cream Salad

    Because I have been cooking Ukrainian dishes lately, I always have Sour Cream and Dill in my fridge. I just mixed leftover Azuki Beans and steamed Sweet Potato with Sour Cream. I also added Dill. This dish is something I would never have thought of making if I hadn’t cooked Ukrainian dishes. New something often …

    Walnuts Stuffed Prunes

    When I was looking for Ukrainian foods on the internet and came across ‘Walnuts Stuffed Prunes’, I was not very interested. I was not a big fan of Dried Prunes, though I was fully aware of the health benefit of Prunes. ‘Walnuts Stuffed Prunes’ should be super easy to make, so I made a few. …

    Cherry Varenyky

    According to the ‘Cherry Varenyky’ recipes I found, I should use fresh Cherries. Cherry season in Melbourne is December. It’s March now. I couldn’t wait that long and I decided to use Frozen Cherries. It’s challenging to make ‘Cherry Varenyky’ using Frozen Cherries OR Canned Cherries, but it can be done. The juice that comes …

    Lviv Style Cheesecake

    Lviv is a beautiful cultural city in western Ukraine, near the border with Poland. It is known as a centre of art, literature, music and theatre. I learned Lviv Cheesecake often contains Dried Fruit such as Raisins and is coated with Chocolate. I couldn’t resist making it. Cheese called ‘Farmers Cheese’ seems to be often …

    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 …
