First off, let me properly greet you with the New Year! I hope it brings you so much joy, happiness, health, peace and provides you with life’s endless blessings. I have been laying low for a few months now, taking time to tackle some neglected projects around the house. Until recently, my time was consumed by the revitalization of a massive hutch I found on Kijiji:
It deserves a story of its own. But I digress… let’s keep this blog focused on Ukrainian breads!
I’m happy to report that after a bit of a lull, I have regained some energy for the upcoming and fast-approaching korovai season. Recent email exchanges and phone calls with enthusiastic korovai customers got my creative juices flowing! One thing that excites me right now is an opportunity to make an elaborate 3-tier korovai using a “baked-on” style that’s new to me. It’s not due until July, so I have plenty of time to experiment with the technique. I have already dived into the research, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, let me share with you some lovely photos of my friend Olenka’s korovai “in action”. I hope they give you some inspiration for what you would like your Ukrainian wedding to be! They are provided courtesy of Moussa Faddoul of fotoreflection.com.
