A Note on Ukrainian Ovens:

Oven sizes, temperatures and overall cooking capabilities vary widely from kitchen to kitchen in Ukraine. The setting that your friend or host family cooked a particular dish is most likely not the same for your oven. Because of this, pay special attention to baking temperatures and baking times when you start cooking in your own kitchen. In time, you will know the nuances of your own oven and, no matter how old and quirky, be able to determine exactly what setting works for you. If you are a baker of cakes and cookies, an oven thermometer will help you determine cooking temperatures of your oven and allow you to adjust cooking times accordingly.
