SLAVIC FOOD BLOG
With the re-launch of the SlavicCooking.com Blog in its new format and with major upgrades I would like to thank a very important person in my life who taught me the importance of my faith in God, family, community, heritage, traditions, and always looking at the good in people. This person has been my strength in times of tribulations and celebrations.
It was because of this person that I decided to create this website / blog from the lessons taught and learned about who I am. I am a 2nd generation American born of a Czechoslovakian father and a Polish mother. From the beginning both of these heritages were on equal status in our family. Growing up, neither played dominance over the other – each heritage and traditions were equally important. This major player in my life has been my teacher, protector and truly my best friend.
I wish to dedicate the
Slavic Informational and Recipe Sharing Website
and Blog to the
Lipovsky-Daniewicz Family Matriarch,
Anne Daniewicz Lipovsky Yourstone

SlavicCooking.com website is dedicated to traditional recipes from the Slavic Region of old Europe. The Slavic Region is represented by many nations including but not limited to Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Macedonia, Germany, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and parts of Russia and others. This is about the home cooking of our grandparents in the old country that they brought over to the Americas. In the 10th century the Czechs were more powerful, and in the 16th century Poland was the strongest nation in the area. Russia is now the most powerful Slavic country.
Who doesn’t enjoy pierogi, kielbasa or even Hungarian Chicken Paprikás?! Maybe you have a different version of a recipe and would like to share. Maybe you even have a story which you would like to share about your own Babchi, grandma, nana or whatever you called your grandmother.
On this blog I hope to share with you my ideas and practices in the kitchen. Sometimes certain things done by others can lead to true and accepted short-cuts. Maybe even a more improved method of cooking and baking. At anytime you wish to add something or even find something I posted is incorrect, please feel free to comment. Cooking Slavic food, whether it be Polish, Czechoslovak, Hungarian or other countries in the region, is important to keeping our ethnic heritage alive in our traditions.
