This is a fully hands-on cooking class. Together will cook a bunch of juicy Central Asian and Slavic meat dumplings. Think Armenian manti, Dagestan kurze, and Russian Pelmeni. You will learn how to make all of them! I will show you various dumpling folds and different ways of cooking them. We'll also make hot and vibrant Ajika sauce to compliment your delicious dumplings. Whether you're a beginner or a savvy cook, this class is great for everyone! I will send you the link for recipes and a Zoom link a week before the class.

This is a wonderful condiment you can use for a lot of your favorite dishes. I chose it because it wonderfully complements the meat dumplings.
