Ukrainian Food: Prepare To Be Stuffed

Feb 20, 2008
All relationships are full of challenges, more so if you are dating someone from another country with diverse culture and background. The language barrier, lack of understanding of your fiancee's considered opinion on major life issues and mundane concerns could hinder your progress to build a deeper relationship. Therefore endeavour to learn more about Ukrainian cuisine and drinking practices to start your learning process.

It is important for you to know that Ukrainians are very warm and giving when it comes to feeding their visitors. Perhaps this is an offshoot of their excellent abilities in the kitchen. Our first dating tip is to be ready to be invited and cajoled to eat so much and go for as many helpings as you can when you are invited for dinner at your fiancee's house. If you do not, they will think that you are snubbing their hospitality and do not appreciate the effort put in the preparation of all these food.

You should know that Ukrainian cuisine includes some very tasty dishes along with some more exotic ones. Among the most traditional Ukrainian dishes there are Borshch (beet soup), Vareniki (sort of Ravioli), Nalisniki (pancakes), Golubsti (cabbage rolls) and Salo with garlic (Pig's fat). Some of these you may like, while others you may hate. So, another one of the Ukraine dating tips is to think out some nice explanation as to why you do not want to eat or even taste some of the food offered to you.

Be creative with your answers or it could spell doom for your relationship with her family. We know that in most European countries and in the US, nobody eats pure pig's fat. But plainly told to your fiancee's family, will not do you any good. So think ahead of time for some inspired reason why you cannot take part of some of the foods.

Let us look at the Ukrainian drinking habits. Ukrainian men in general drink a lot, imbibing vodka or cognac till they are much too drunk. As a matter of fact, this is one of the major reasons why Ukrainian women shun the local men and turn to foreign men for marriage. So if you are seriously pursuing your Ukrainian dating, Tip No.3 will be of help: Do not drink too much and do not share your "pub stories" with your lady.

Some ladies tend to drink a lot of alcohol too, especially during dates or certain occasions, which they believe is quite acceptable. Besides, some ladies make the men they are dating or marrying promise that they will never take even a single drop of alcohol.

In preparation for your visit to your lady's family, it would be ideal if you could discuss ahead of time hers and her family's drinking habits. If she does not disagree, a bottle of good vodka, wine or cognac will extremely pleasing to her family and her father. You, on the other hand, should refrain from drinking too much, regardless if her family continuously cajole you to drink some more.

Abiding by these tips will enable you develop a good rapport with your fiancee and avoid conflicts in your relationship.
