Transport to Eastern Europe to learn how to make the famous beet soup, Borscht and the beloved Pelmeni Dumplings in a virtual cooking class you'll never forget

Close your eyes and imagine walking the streets of an ancient Eastern European village. It's chilly and you're looking to warm up with a hearty meal. Alas, you stumble across a local cafe and settle in.... 

A tour of delicious dumplings around the world wouldn't be complete without Pelmeni dumplings.  A likely theory suggests these perfect little meat pockets originated in Siberia as an adaptation of the Chinese Jiaozi, from where they gradually spread as far as Eastern Europe.  Most closely associated with Russian cuisine, these little pockets of dough are stuffed with savory filling, boiled until plump and then topped with butter, dill and of course a dollop of sour cream. 

But not to be outdone is the famous Borscht. Brilliant red beetroot simmering away with cabbage and root vegetables come together resulting in a hearty and nourishing soup you'll crave on both warm and cool days. This class will warm your soul as much as your stomach.
