Family Cooking Stories.

For centuries life of a family revolved around the hearth.  We often hear and read family cooking stories.  One of the Video Biography sections may describe your family’s particular cooking ritual.  This one is about ours.

Every summer I get my sisters together to cook my favorite dish: “Vareniki (Ravioli) with Cherries.”  This dish is a fabulous pasta-dessert, served cold, and was my childhood’s special delight.  In Odessa of Southern Ukraine, it usually follows cold green borsch and fried fish.  But those other two dishes are for another post, perhaps.

Our entire family participates in this fairly involved process.  The cherry-raspberry-blueberry sauce is what makes it unforgettable.
