Pride and Defiance in a Bowl of Borsch
"My main message: we are already one. And in any uncertain situation, cook and eat Borsch. Because it’s about Ukraine. Was, is and will be.” --Love the way you wove all of this research together, and the recipe too! I have chills ❤️🩹
I used to live in Ukrainian Village and one of the things I love about the neighborhood is how everyone rallies together when they need it, without question, just immediate support and togetherness. It’s time for us to return the favor.
Frightening what is happening in the Ukraine. Thanks for your sensitive words.
Thanks for sharing this. Food has a way of holding memories in a way that nothing else can.
Watching helplessly is so hard. Thanks for this.
You hit my heart with the title, on-wards.
So heartbreaking what’s going on! Thanks for a timely, heartfelt post, Jolene! I’ve never until now thought making borscht might be an act of solidarity and a vote for democracy. I have Ukrainian friends here whose families are in peril in Kyiv and whose compatriots may lose their lives fighting to hold onto their country. It’s a tragedy. Thanks also for the mention of my piece on you.
It's heartbreaking and scary. My mother's parents were both from that area, and my mother often made Borsch with that big dollop of sour cream. I'm not a particular fan of beets, but I'd love to have a big bowl of Borsch now!
Thanks for the borsch, Jolene. Thanks for the words, and buona domenica https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp2oxWdRMuk
Thank you for this meaningful and symbolic post Jolene 🫂 #FreeUkraine 🇺🇦
The news is devastating. Thank you for shining a light on this chef. And thank you for the kind mention xo
No recipe- my mother never used a recipe except for baking and then she deviated!
Pride and Defiance ... nice -- Putin will succed 'when the Pyramid moves'
Thank you, Jolene. A heartbreaking, senseless situation.
