The migratory flows that came to Argentina have many pages that are curious. We all know that thousands and thousands of Italians, Spaniards and several other countries arrived in our lands, but it is crazy that Argentina has been elected by Ukrainians. Let's see: the desperation to flee Europe in those years was such that, more or less, they went to any country that received them. But the fact that thousands of families spending 40 degrees below zero winters have settled in the heat and humidity of Misiones and Formosa is at best.- No? - No . However, they did. In their diaspora, some families also chose northern Santa Fe. That Ukrainian legacy is still being traced. It can be clearly seen in the food. Many northern Santafesinos continue to prepare the exquisite varenikes.
In the department of Vera is the town of Calchaquí. It is a little more than 200 kilometers from the provincial capital. There they eat the richest varenikes in the province. They regularly organize large family meetings where they bring out this recipe from their grandparents. They taught how to prepare and appreciate it . That's why in Calchaquí and with the varenikes there are good memories. Not only when you taste them, but as you get together to prepare them.
But what are varenikes? Basically a pasta. They can have quadrangular or crescent shape. They are stuffed with sauerkraut, cheese, mashed potatoes, cabbage, meat, boiled eggs (a Mennonite tradition), fruit or a combination of these ingredients.
From Calchhere they send us a recipe. Do you dare to prepare Ukrainian pasta?
½ kg flour
Hot water (required amount)
Salt to taste
1 kg of potato and ricotta (to taste)
Seasoning to taste
