A freezer full of homemade Russian-style dumplings is the best way to stock up for the cold rainy days of winter. This class will teach you exactly how to do it.  And naturally, we will be pairing the dumplings and tasting local vodkas, because we are going all out Russian style for this one. We are essentially cooking up the article featured in Edible Marin & Wine Country: Tabletop Perestroika We will focus on two types of dumplings Pelmeni & Vareniki. Pelmeni are small ear-shaped, meat-filled dumplings. Vareniki are larger, crescent-shaped dumplings, usually filled with cheese or fruit jam.   For the vodkas we are skipping the grape based locals and emphasizing the Russian-style grain based folks in the spirit of authenticity. Cold vodka and a belly filled with warm dumplings is what your winter needs. We teach you how to pull it off at home!
