From Ukraine to Lithuania: A Heartfelt Conversation with Daria


Hello to all my wonderful followers! Recently, in the cozy setting of Obaa Borga’s Kitchen, I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with Daria. For those who’ve missed this enlightening chat, I recommend catching up by watching the video here. Our conversation flowed seamlessly, encompassing rich anecdotes, shared chuckles, and the delightful experience of cooking together.

A Dish That Holds Memories: The Potato Cake


Daria, whose roots trace back to Ukraine but now calls Lithuania home, shares an intrinsic bond with the Potato Cake. As she expertly guided me through the cooking process, each step seemed to resonate with tales from her past. She spoke fondly of her childhood, where this dish was a staple. It’s not just a cake; it’s a stroll down memory lane for her. The way she detailed the ingredients and the process, I could almost see her as a little girl, excitedly preparing this dish in her family’s kitchen.

Cultural Nuances: Ukraine Vs. Lithuania


Beyond the dish, we delved into her life’s experiences. She painted a vibrant picture of Ukrainian culture, emphasizing the warmth and openness of its people. The way they easily share their stories with strangers stood in stark contrast to the more reserved nature of Lithuanians. It’s these differences in cultures, interactions, and even the little things like greeting someone that make our world so beautifully diverse.

A Love Beyond Borders


In a heartfelt segment of our chat, Daria shared snippets of her romantic journey. It’s a story that could inspire poets: a love that defied geographical boundaries, bridging Ukraine and Lithuania. The way her eyes lit up when talking her then boyfriend now husband, who traveled miles, crossing countries just to be with her was truly touching. Her relationship is a testament to the belief that love, when genuine, knows no borders or boundaries.

A Call to Support Ukraine


The resilience of the Ukrainian spirit shone brightly as Daria touched upon the ongoing challenges faced by her homeland. Drawing from personal experiences and stories of family and friends, she shed light on the undying hope and strength of her people. Her appeal for global solidarity and support for Ukraine was heartfelt, emphasizing that in today’s interconnected world, every gesture of kindness amplifies hope.

More Than Just Cooking


Our time together transcended a typical cooking session. It was a rich tapestry of stories, lessons, mutual learning, and respect. With Daria’s openness and our shared passion for food, we created more than just a dish; we wove memories. I’m ever grateful for such moments that Obaa Borga’s Kitchen has brought into my life.

So, stay connected, dear readers, for more such heartwarming interactions and delightful recipes. And if the Potato Cake piqued your interest, I urge you to give it a shot. Its flavors, much like our chat with Daria, linger long after.
