Just to let everyone know that the word "готувати" is misleading. In Ukrainian, "готувати" means "to prepare" something (not necessarily food). I believe the word comes from the Russian "готовить" for their word "to cook".
In Ukrainian (a different language) One can 'prepare' food but it is NOT the actual PROCESS OF COOKING. You can prepare "готувати' or create a pizza, but it is 'baked' in the oven, which is "пекти".
The proper term "to cook" (on the stove) is "варити" in Ukrainian.
Please let us not mix languages if there are descriptive words in the original language already. Respect the Ukrainian language. Шануймо Українську мову!
This course teaches literary Ukrainian as spoken in Ukraine, and «готува́ти» can mean 'to cook' in Ukraine.
Шануймо не тільки українську мову Америки, але й українську мову України! Let's respect not just American Ukrainian, but Ukrainian of Ukraine too!
