This time round our group was learning to make Russian meat dumplings – Пельмени and their Ukrainian version – with cottage cheese filling – Вареники.

Our invited chef Tatiana taught us how to make dough for Siberian meat dumplings.

We tried hard to make our dough elastic and between the 9 of us we made over a 100 of dumplings!

Then we boiled and enjoyed eating them with Сметана – creme fresh.

We then had a lovely dinner, learnt some new Russian words and later continued with watching old Russian cartoons.

Thank you to Tatiana, who shared with us her secrets, and to Albert – our wonderful host!
