EATING OUT: RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE

EATING OUT: RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE

Nothing tastes better than something made with a grandmother’s love. That may explain the popularity of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral’s Friday Night Suppers.

On the first Friday of the month, a multi-cultural mélange of hungry pierogi pilgrims line up around the block for traditional borsch, boiled varenyky and holubtsi cabbage rolls handmade by the ladies’ auxiliary and eaten cafeteria-style on plastic trays at communal tables or packaged for takeout.

Even hardened atheists have found God in a plate of sauerkraut-stuffed kapusta with a side of kovbasa sausage. Technically, supper service runs from 5pm to 8pm, but line ups are common and things tend to sell out early.

Smačnoho (bon appétit)!
