From the archives: Senida Husic and her family cooking up a pot of kupus in their Bowling Green, KY home. Husic described: “The part of [Bosnia] where my family is from, the stew is called ‘kupus’ which is essentially just ‘cabbage’. There are different variations of how it’s made, family to family, but mostly it’s referred to as kupus.”
