The making of paska, an Easter bread, by chef Mary Woloshyn

Willis and I made the rounds of hospital patients yesterday and then strolled over to the nursing home to have afternoon tea with the longterm-care residents. One of the local ladies was making this traditional Ukrainian paska so we admired her handiwork.

You have to move quickly to get all the tiny pieces of dough into place before they rise too much, but when you're successful, the finished product looks like this:


  1. I bought paska this weekend, although I didn't know what it was called. It's wonderful, but I say that about almost every kind of bread I've ever eaten.

  2. Hope you had a Happy Easter. Bread looks so good!

  3. Oh, was it Easter? That aspect of it kind of slipped past me!
