Things To Know About Ukrainian Eating And Drinking Culture

Any relationship can be quite challenging, but when dating someone from another country, culture and background, you may have to deal with such obstacles as language barrier, cultural differences and luck of knowledge on your fiancee's perceptions, both about major life issues and about the little nothings of life. Therefore, learning more about Ukrainian cuisine and drinking habits would provide you with good start in your relationship.

First thing you should know about Ukrainian cuisine is that Ukrainians are very hospitable and generous when it comes to feeding their guests. Moreover, Ukrainian ladies love and know how to cook. So, the first of our Ukraine dating tips is to be prepared to eat much and try not to refuse a second helping of anything when you are invited to dinner over to your fiancee's home. Otherwise, she and her family (especially her mother) might think you shun their hospitality and dislike their food (and efforts put towards cooking it).

Ukrainian cuisine runs the whole gamut of dishes - from the very tasty to the exotic. The most traditional of Ukrainian dishes are Salo or Pig's fatwith garlic, Borshch or beet soup, Vareniki or the Ukrainian version of Ravioli, Nalisniki or pancakes, and Golubsti or cabbage rolls. Some of these items you will definitely love, while others you might hate. Another tip then is to think about an inoffensive and nice excuse on why you do not want to eat or even taste some of them.

Your reason must be believable. In the United States and in most countries in Europe, pig's fat is not eaten at all. You might even be feeling sick just thinking about it. But of course, you do not tell it to her family. So think ahead of a very good reason why you are denying yourself that pig's fat.

As to the Ukrainian drinking habits, you should know that many Ukrainian men do drink a lot. Most Ukrainian men prefer vodka or cognac. In fact, this is one of the reasons why many Ukrainian women wish to marry foreign men. Thus, if you want to be successful in your Ukrainian dating you should better follow the third one of the Ukraine dating tips: do not drink much and do not share much with your lady your "pub adventures".

Of course, there are some Ukrainian ladies who drink a lot of alcohol. Most of them think it is okay to drink some wine or other liquor when you are having a date or when you are taking part in celebrations or holidays. Still, there are some ladies who are very specific about their men not drinking any alcohol at all.

Before you go out and visit her family, it would be wise to discuss drinking with her. If she is not totally against it, you may opt to bring a bottle of good wine, vodka or cognac for father or her entire family. At all times, drink only a few shots of drink, even if her family offers you to drink more.

Keeping these tips in mind will certainly impress your Ukrainian lady and avoid any unnecessary fights in you relationship.
