What you'll do

Love Russian food, want to master the famous Dumplings (Pelmeni)? Join me in the kitchen for a fun adventure as I share my secrets to cooking, that you can easily recreate at home. It will be a small group, so we will do all the cooking together. The class will be interactive, rather than demonstrative. - We will start with making the perfect dough. I will give you all the tricks and tips on how to achieve a soft and thin dough. - We will be making 2 different fillings, one with meat and one with cheese. - I will show you how to make dumplings by hand, so you will learn the technique. - We will fry and boil the dumplings and enjoy our homemade dumplings in a traditional way with sour cream & dill. - We will feast on what we cook - All ingredients will be provided. - You will also receive a full recipe with directions of what we will make during the class. Classes can also be booked for groups and special celebrations. If your date is not available please write to make a request. Please specify dietary requirements and allergies when booking :) PLEASE NOTE: I cannot take bookings for 1 person, so please check if someone else is coming on that day or message me in advance before booking if you travelling solo, in case I can add you to another class :)

Latvian/Russian girl living in London, passionate about food. In fact, I am a food addict and pretty much talk about food all day long :) I absolutely love Russian dumplings - Pelmeni, and everyone who tried it, loves it as well, as they can be so versatile. You can also have them fried or boiled in a traditional broth! The process of making the dumplings is so relaxing and calming, that I wanted to create this experience. My goal is to share nice moments with my guests and to help them make Russian dumplings like a chef. Please check out some of my other cooking experiences in London, if you'd like to try something unique and tasty. If you want to see my work check out my Instagram - @allasyummyfood. I’ve received a 2-year CPR & First Aid certification from the Red Cross (issued Sept. 11th, 2019)
