Dames Who Read Explore Ukrainian History Through Food

unnamed-20Nearly 100,000 people of Ukrainian descent live in the Chicago area, many with their own proud generational and culinary stories.  Join Dames Who Read and explore Ukrainian history and family dynamics as well as memories of the table as we read Savage Feast, Three Generation, Two Continents, and a Dinner Table, by Boris Fishman.
Our evening will begin with a guided tour at the Ukrainian National Museum of Chicago, where we will learn about the local immigrant story and see artifacts from their collection. A short walk away, Tryzub restaurant will present dishes – including some mentioned in the book – that will further tell the story.

Afterward, save room and time for a quick visit to a nearby Ukrainian grocery store where we will find examples of all of the mentioned ingredients as well as some amazing desserts.
