On Wednesday 9th August, the Mix and Mingle at MOOL morning was dedicated to ‘A Taste of Ukraine’.
A group of Ukrainian guests prepared and shared a number of traditional Ukrainian dishes with everyone who turned up. We had a great response with a good number of both local people and new Scots joining us.
It was wonderful to try dishes such as Borscht, Holubtsi (stuffed cabbage rolls), Nalisniki (filled with mushroom, chicken and mushroom as well as curd cheese and raisins), along with devilled eggs and courgettes with mayonnaise and garlic – all of which were delicious. It was fabulous to hear more about Ukrainian traditions and how food is enjoyed at different celebrations throughout the year and for our Ukrainian guests to thank local people for the warm welcome they have received in Dumfries.
Anyone is welcome to join us at Mix and Mingle at MOOL on a Wednesday morning between 10.30 and 12.30 for fun, games, crafts, conversation and of course refreshments. A great opportunity to meet people, make friends and have fun. We meet at St Andrew’s Parish Hall, Brooke Street, Dumfries. DG1 2JL.
