Kalach (food)

"Kalach" ( _ru. кала́ч; _uk. колач), also known as "kolach"), is a traditional East Slavic bread used at various ritual meals.

Ukrainian tradition

Ukrainian "kolachi" (plural) are traditionally made by braiding dough made with wheat flour into ring-shaped or oblong forms.

It is a symbol of luck, prosperity, and good bounty. It is traditionally prepared for "Svyat Vechir (Holy Supper)", the traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve ritual, most often 3 round breads stacked one atop the other with a candle in the middle.

"Kolaches" are also featured at memorial services.
