Imperial quality to Empire

One of the first TUCC events was held in the Empire Restaurant of the Premier Palace Hotel over 2 years ago and they did not fare very well - in fact they did not pass the test.


A King of Dragons lives in Kyiv

Around the world and also in Kyiv Chinese restaurants can be synonymous with tasty but inexpensive fast food outlets offering tastes and flavors a little different to the local norm. However, a Chinese restaurant can also be "top of the range" offering exquisite dishes from the "haute couture" of Chinese cuisine.


Restaurant Design - what is behind the definition

By who and how and what does it cost to implement a good design interior for a restaurant? Those were the questions raised by Internet-project Chicken.Kiev and then discussed at the second meeting of the press-club Restaurant Critic held at the first Ukrainian Fashion TV Cafe - Marokana.


It is not Michelin but*

For more than two years now The Ukrainian Connoisseur Club has been visiting, dining and rating many of the leading restaurants in Kyiv. Those achieving an aggregate score from the member questionnaires of more than 4 out of 5 were then awarded the TUCC approval and became TUCC restaurants. To date the 13 restaurants featured below have achieved that approval and since the introduction of the 5-star status in January 2003 (for the restaurants that score 4.7 and more) only Marche has achieved this accolade.



Do you know the meaning of the word "fusion"? Well, according to the dictionary the meaning is integration, unification, merger, interlocking. And the meaning when applies to the art of cuisine? This is when you combine cuisine cultures usually Asian and European. Taking the best of both and fusing them together to make new and exiting cuisine - Fusion.


First time in Ukraine - Restaurant Critic

To educate a restaurant critic - well, that is the aim of the Internet project Chicken.Kiev. To promote their idea they have organized a press club where the restaurant reporters from a variety of media can meet and discuss with the restaurateurs themselves.


Connoisseurs Dancing

The Mambo Restaurant appeared on the restaurant scene of Kyiv not so long ago but is already well known for its bright adverts, interesting parties and original menu.

The Ukrainian Connoisseur Club event held on the 24th of July all our members will remember as one of the most unique and cheerful. It even started in an unusual manner. It is the custom that before an event the organizers go for a trial dinner to ensure that the dining experience will meet the Clubs criteria.


Bossa Nova Night

Bossa Nova (also known as Brazilian Jazz) appeared not too long ago but is already admired all around the world thanks to its melodic sound and harmonious rhythms. The most famous bossa nova singer Jiao Gilberto introduced this music to jazzman Antonio Carlos Jobim who started performing Bossa Nova songs in English. This fact tremendously increased the popularity of this style within English-speaking countries. Probably the best known example around the world of Bossa Nova music is Besame Mucho by Consuelo Velazquez.



The main aim of The Ukrainian Connoisseur Club (hereinafter - "TUCC") is to improve the quality of fine dining and service in the leading restaurants of Kyiv.

TUCC is also formatted to familiarize the members of TUCC with the cuisines and wine-lists of various leading restaurants of Kyiv, the compatibility of different wines with different dishes, history of gastronomy and wine-making of various cuisines.

Budmo, hey! (Let's be!) The first thing which comes to my mind... No, that's not what I should say. The first picture which my imagination paints when I hear the words "the Ukrainian cuisine" is an episode from the movie of Hohol's "Evenings in the hamlet near Dykanka", where varenyky, having rolled around by themselves in sour cream, jump into Patsiuk(The Rat)'s mouth. What a great moment! What a great delicacy! And what a great way to eat it! It is certainly a pity that nobody has yet invented a "remote control for the mouth and the plate", and the above method of delivering food into the mouth is just the devil's trick or Hohol's project that is impossible to implement. But then, the amount of halushky (by the way, in a big, big bowl) is just right for our healthy and inspired Ukrainian appetite! Never mind how other people eat, but we, not so rich people, or one can even say people very far from being rich, are used to eating in grand style. It is not without reason that our phrase, "Love comes and goes, but you will always want to eat!", simply does not translate well into other languages - probably foreigners simply just do not have such words. So, what am I talking about? Oh yeah, about the unmatched Ukrainian cuisine! "There's no fish better than tench, and no meat better than pork." Among all the dishes of Ukrainian cuisine, for example, that of the very beginning of the XX century, one can single out several subcategories, which were the most popular among native Ukrainian people: those made from grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits. Note than in the old days, dishes made from meat were considered food for festive days only, and among all the existing kinds of meat, the undisputable preference was given to pork and certainly (could there be any doubting it?) salo - oh, our Ukrainian salo!
