The Meal

Klassen ancestors in ukraine.jpg

Many Mennonites can trace their roots back to villages in Ukraine. During the First and Second World Wars, many of our ancestors fled to Canada, escaping the horrors of war, leaving everything behind. They lost so much but not their love of food.

On Sunday, April 10th, we will be serving a typical Ukrainian-Mennonite lunch consisting of borscht, zwieback and platz.

Passed down from generation to generation, these are just a few of the recipes that were brought to Canada from Ukraine. We hope you will join us, not only for the food, but for our common goal; helping Ukrainians who are in dire need today.

Mennonite Borscht, a hearty soup of vegetables, potatoes and beef, differs slightly from Ukrainian borscht as no beets are used.

Zwieback meaning "twice baked" is a bun with an extra little bun on top. These soft buns are best served warm and are perfect to dunk in your borscht!

Platz is the only way to finish our lunch. Made up of a thin layer of cake, a generous layer of fruit and topped with buttery crumbs, platz is the ultimate comfort dessert.

"Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?" James 2:15
