Get Cooking

Join Chef Cindy Lazarenko as she revisits a favourite dish from her beloved Edmonton restaurant Culina Highlands, and adapts it for your home kitchen. Cindy’s Nachynka with Pork Tenderloin and a Demi-Glace Sauce was a customer fave in the Highlands, but equally delicious is this homier version of her Ukranian Cornmeal Casserole, topped with Pork Meatballs in a Mushroom Gravy. Join Cindy’s online cooking class for a taste of her Ukrainian heritage as you learn this favourite Lazarenko family recipe.
