1st (hopefully annual) HOUSTON BORSCHT COOK-OFF
benefiting HTX4Ukraine

Saturday, November 12, 2022 @ 11:00am-3:30pm

Pokrova Ukrainian Church Parish Hall and Grounds, 9102 Meadowshire St, Houston, TX 77037 (navigate)

This November join the local Ukrainian community in celebrating one of the most traditional and important dishes from Ukrainian cuisine - BORSCHT. Earlier this year the Culture of Ukrainian Borscht Cooking was officially inscribed by UNESCO on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.

Hearty and flavor-rich, borscht has been a centuries-old staple at every Ukrainian table, but you will never find two borschts that are completely alike!

And so we welcome you to join us in exploring its history and rich variety at the 1st ever BORSCHT COOK-OFF in this great city of Houston!!

We would love to welcome Houstonians and guests of our city to the cook-off!!! In fact, we'll need y'all's help to pick the winner of THE PEOPLE'S FAVOURITE BORSCHT award.

Entry fees are $10* per person and includes a small cup to sample each participating team's borscht.

Baked goods, drinks and other Ukrainian delicatessen will be available for purchase at the event, as well as Borscht to-go!

* FREE entry for children under 12 years of age

Even more exciting things await throughout the day:

  • Varenyky-eating competition at 1pm (arrive early to register to participate)

  • Kids activities and competitions including "bob-for-beets" and "beet-and-spoon races" (boys vs girls)

  • And much much more.....
