    In a rollicking, entertaining read, Baba's Kitchen leads you into the complex soul of Eastern Europe's Indigenous people.

    Ukrainian-Canadian Raisa Stone spent decades collecting outrageous stories and recipes from survivors of Soviet and Nazi terror, including her family. Narrator, Baba, is a composite of these invincible souls. Ukraine has been continuously inhabited by civilized, immensely inventive people for 44,000 years.

    Ukrainians: first tamed horses, invented pants, 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.

    Compared to erotic games in the village bath & shoplifting live turkeys in your bloomers, immigrant life is beyond boring. So Baba is brewing up Old Country customs in her kitchen. She'll teach you to make 200 delicious Ukrainian dishes and simple folk remedies) the traditional & The Lazy Way, sabotage frenemies with garlic, & utter chilling Slavic curses such as, "May you be kicked by a duck!

    Between tales of magical encounters with Nature spirits & steaming bowls of borshch is the true confession of the author's elderly neighbour:she murdered her abusive husband.

    Imagine a mouth watering Honey Onion Sauce that recalls competing with cave bears and wild bees, and the seductive magic of preparing sweet delights for the Apple Harvest Blessing.
