Celebrate Ukrainian Christmas

December 27th, 2023

05:30PM - 08:30PM

Celebrate Ukrainian Christmas with Chef Tetiana Stratilat! Chef Tetiana will offer instruction on making authentic Ukrainian Christmas dishes and she’ll also share a fascinating story (or two!) about Christmas traditions in Ukraine. (Traditionally, Ukraine celebrates Christmas on Jan. 7th in accordance with the Eastern Orthodox religious calendar.)

This workshop will be a celebration of Ukrainian food and traditions right here in Fort Collins. Веселого Різдва!

What We’re Cooking:

  • Hutsul Salad Varya (beet salad with plum and sauerkraut)
  • Kachuna Grudka (pan seared duck breast with oyster mushroom & cornmeal grits)
  • Pampuhy (doughnuts with jam)
  • Kutya (a traditional Ukrainian sweet grain pudding served for Christmas Eve dinner)


  • Hands-on instruction by a Ginger and Baker Chef Instructor.
  • Enjoy the items you cooked at the end of class.
  • A take-home recipe packet with all the menu items from class.

Chef Tetiana is a Ukrainian refugee who made it to Colorado in June, a few months after the war began. Since arriving, she’s been teaching cooking classes here on the front range as well as donating her time and skills to non-profit organizations that help Ukrainians.
