Kyiv is famous for at least three unique culinary inventions known in the world: Kyiv-style cutlet, Kyiv cake and Kyiv dry jam. And these dishes have every right to be on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage of mankind.
There are not enough books about Kyiv cuisine – those where the emphasis would be on the city’s traditions and history of cooking and give exact recipes. An old family notebook with an authentic recipe from the 1960s and 1980s became one of the foundations of the author’s story about how the people of Kyiv knew how to cook deliciously even when there were not enough products. The city cuisine of the mentioned years is not very complicated, but it is worth noting as a kind of monument of the era.
Also in the book “CHIKEN KYIV. Secrets of Kyiv Cooking ”contains many stories from the life of Kyiv: happy and sad, incredible and curious.
