where to buy paska in vancouver - or north shore or east burbs
with easter coming up, we want to know where to buy decent paska in greater vanc
thank you for checking
i suppose we could also get in to discussions about where to find best kolbassa in Vanc area too.
plus - my aunt always makes wheat and honey and poppy seeds mixed together - kind of consistency of a pudding. Kutia -- it symbolizes good things - doesn't all food!? -
of course, every good occasion has pyrohy (we pronounce like "para-hay" - not the way one often hears with the hard "g" and spelling - perogy)
re: Georgia Strait
Ah, I lived with a Ukrainian family for a while when I was a kid. Pinched many a 'para-hay' for various wedding buffets, made many Nalysnyky, and enjoyed kolbassa straight from local (Edmonton, Vegerville) farmers. Kutia was a feature of the meatless xmas eve dinners. Memories!
I pull this off my shelf when nostalgia strikes http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60...
I'd love to know of a good local kolbassa here.
Seriously though, how about making some yourself? It's not that "hard" and there are tons of recipes around.
I do understand that it's easier to just buy some authentic stuff.
In any case, if you travel out to the Fraser Valley i'm sure you can throw a stone and hit some place that sells Paska seasonally.
Or check out this book from this website:
Notice that there's a gluten-free paska recipe there on the front page. The coconut chiffon cake looks awesome too.
