It is very difficult to imagine a Ukrainian special occasion meal without the holubtsi (cabbage rolls), where cabbage or grape leaves are wrapped around a stuffing and simmered in a rich sauce, typically tomato-based. Throughout history, every region of Ukraine has developed its own versions of holubtsi, adapting it to local ingredients and tastes. Join us as we prepare holubtsi as it is made in Tavria, a southern region of Ukraine often referred to as Tauris.
