What do Ukrainians want?
In a rollicking, entertaining read, Baba's Kitchen will lead you into the complex soul of Eastern Europe's Indigenous people.
Ukrainian author Raisa Stone spent 50 years collecting heart wrenching and hilarious stories and 190 recipes from survivors of Soviet and Nazi terror, including her family. Raisa's narrator, Baba (Grandma), is a composite of these invincible souls.
Ukraine has been continuously inhabited by civilized, immensely inventive people for 44,000 years.
What we see in Ukraine's recent events is resistance to hundreds of years of oppression.

Ukrainians: first tamed horses, invented pants (for riding!), the bow and arrow, built homes from mammoth bone & pyramids older than Egypt's, & created Europe's first democratic constitution.
Shamanic practices that sparked the original werewolf and Amazon legends (the latter documented by Greek physician Hippocrates) combine with recipes & customs reaching back to the Neolithic era.
