The Ukraine through the eyes of Olena Yashchuk Codet Artist, Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Jounalist This Storytelling evening features Olena Yashchuk Codet, artist, graphic designer, illustrator and journalist. A Ukrainian living in Paris, Olena takes an active part in Ukrainian cultural life in the French capital. Her personal mission is to create enriching experiences and connections between the Ukrainian and French cultures. To this end, Olena is delighted to present her motherland with stories that reveal the beauty, richness, talent and soul of Ukraine. This will be revealed through the traditional crafts, art, costumes and cuisine as well as stories of key women who played an important role in the history of this country. Olena holds a Masters in Anthropology with additional degrees in International Trade and Marketing Communications. As a graphic designer and artist, her work has featured in personal and international expositions and salons in the UK and France such as the International Art Fair, Chelsea Art Fair, Edinburgh Art Fair, Ukrainian Art Exhibition, and the New Art Gallery.

The menu, a key part of the evening, will include the famous Ukrainian Borsch soup, stuffed peppers, various appetizers and the traditional Kutya- a delightful holiday dessert of berries, poppy seed, honey, raisin, apricots and almonds. As a special touch, Olena is offering a taste of the traditional Ukrainian Gorilka (vodka) with honey & hot pepper.
