Ukrainian Christmas at Veselka (including recipies!)

On 6 January, the New York Times published an excellent article about Ukrainian East Village stalwart Vesekla, "A Ukrainian Beacon in the East Village."

Nicely timed for Old Calendar Christmas Eve, the article describes the history of the restaurant, and the Ukrainian Sviata Vecheria Christmas Eve tradition. The article even includes recipies for Ukrainian Christmas BorschtUkrainian Mushroom and Onion Dumplings (Vushka) and Spiced Dried Fruit Compote (Uzvar).

And for more recipies, check out the Veselka Cookbook, published late last year.
