Yevhen’s special passion is Ukrainian cuisine. He is constantly searching for and modernizing old Ukrainian recipes and popularizing Ukrainian cuisine around the world.
In October 2020, on Yevhen’s initiative, borsch was included in the National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage. This was preceded by 1.5 years of hard work: the NGO Institute of Culture of Ukraine was created, a “borsch expedition” was conducted throughout Ukraine, and a complex 12-stage preparatory work to collect and approve all the necessary documentation was carried out.
On March 30, 2021, Ukraine submitted an application to UNESCO, and on July 1, 2022, Ukrainian borsch was inscribed on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, putting an end to the debate about its homeland, because borsch is Ukrainian!
