Chef Yevhen Klopotenko is proposing the creation of a museum dedicated to Ukrainian borsch culture in Kyiv. He suggests that the museum would be a place where visitors can learn about the dish’s history and enjoy interactive activities while collecting various recipes.
On his Facebook page, Klopotenko shared his idea of a borsch museum in Kyiv. He recently showed guests from UNESCO and Ukrainian officials his borsch-making skills. The group discussed the idea of creating a museum dedicated to the dish that would showcase different regional variations of borsch.
“By the way, there is already a borsch museum in Opishne. But what do you think of the idea of creating a museum of Ukrainian borsch culture in Kyiv? To have all the recipes collected there, and different interactive activities. A foreigner could go there, read about the borsch set, draw with beets, and eat. And he left with a complete understanding of what Ukrainian borsch is. And then he took this knowledge to the world.”
Klopotenko envisions that the museum would provide visitors with a complete understanding of Ukrainian borsch. It would be a place where people could learn about the ingredients used in the dish, find out about its history and culture. The museum would also have interactive cooking workshops where visitors can learn how to prepare the dish.
Collection of Recipes
The museum would have a collection of recipes from different regions of Ukraine. Klopotenko believes that the museum would attract both local and foreign visitors and would become an excellent way to promote Ukrainian cuisine and culture.
