Dash Arts Podcast
Borsch and Other Stories
This episode threads together Ukrainian culture and history with memory, politics and the female perspective. We look at what we can learn about a country through the eyes of women; through their stories, songs and food.
Cook borsch with Artistic Director Josephine Burton and chef Olia Hercules, whose beautiful new book of recipes Summer Kitchen has just been published by Bloomsbury, discover Ukrainian history and politics with prolific writer Oksana Zabuzhko, who has just released a book of fabulous short stories Your Ad Could Go Here, get some insight from the outgoing director of the Ukrainian Institute in London, journalist Marina Pesenti, and listen to the music and stories of musician Mariana Sadovska.
