DID YOU KNOW?
- Borshch has multiple spellings including borscht, borsch, bortsch. We chose the culturally accurate one BORSHCH with 2 H's. In Ukrainian that's .
- Borshch can be red, white or green in colour depending on the primary ingredients used.
- There are as many opinions on where borshch originated as there are people discussing it. We choose to believe it's a gift to the world from Ukraine.
- The debate rages on as to whether or not real borshch has meat in it. Jury's still out as far as we know : )
