The last two weeks: Cookbooks that celebrate the cuisine and people of Ukraine #CookForUkraine; EYBD cookbook previews; giveaways and more

Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine during this unfathomable time. Besides donating to great causes (see a few below), in an effort to do something I am pulling out my cookbooks to cook and show my support for this country. In that vein, today I’ve covered cookbooks devoted to Ukrainian cuisine that bring beauty and inspiration into my kitchen. Many books in our Library cover Eastern European cuisine and may contain Ukrainian recipes. For purposes of this summary, I’ll include those which are mainly Ukrainian in scope (including Alissa Timoshkina who is working on fundraising for Ukraine).

Darcie mentioned a few of these books briefly in her Food News Antipasto on Sunday, today I’ll include EYBD previews and reviews if available. The first section of books are those that I own, have reviewed and love.

Other titles (a few of which I just ordered from Omnivore Books):

Cookbook authors Alissa Timoshkina and Olia Hercules along with Layla Yarjani of Next Gen London and Clerkenwell Boy (Cook for Syria and Bake for Beirut), have set up the #CookforUkraine movement to increase awareness of the crisis in Ukraine and raise funds to aid children and families displaced by the current situation. You can get involved by hosting supper clubs at home, or cooking for Ukraine and donating here: Just Giving fundraiser. This fundraiser shares links to recipes that you may make to show your support. There are also 100 online Ukrainian recipes to try in our Library.

Again as Darcie mentioned on Sunday, Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen is busy feeding thousands of people who are leaving Ukraine and those families who are remaining in their country.
