About the tour

At the time most of us can’t travel there is still a great way to bring Russia home. Let’s cook one of the most popular Russian dishes pelmeni. Russian dumplings are served in every Russian cuisine restaurant and are a very common homemade meal. In fact, we even have places that specialize in dumplings. That’s how much we love pelmeni. Some Russians even consider them as the heart of Russian cuisine. On this tour, you won’t only learn how to make dumplings but also learn about Russian cuisine and specifically dumplings. From the origins and different types of dumplings to why they are one of the main dishes of bachelor’s cuisine in Russia. Prepare: 3 cup flour  3 eggs 2 lb ground meat (preferably beef or beef and pork) 1 large onion grated 1 tsp pepper to taste sour cream (for serving) butter
