Most people have heard about the Chicken Kyiv, but not everyone knows about the existence of the capital's fish delicacy. Pike perch à la Kyiv is a fish baked with potatoes and cheese in a creamy mushroom sauce. Local housewives have been cooking it for over half a century. And this is only the first entry in a cookbook, published in 1965 and entitled "A book about delicious and healthy food." In fact, cooking this dish started earlier. In general, fish dishes occupied an honorable place in the diet of Kyiv natives. Which is not surprising, because the city is located on the banks of one of the largest rivers in Europe, which has long been famous for fish resources.
