Roman Kliotzkin’s house is a lively mix of Eastern & Southern European backgrounds and sensibilities. So tonight, in a spirit of culinary adventure — and to impress his Portuguese in-laws — Roman is combining classic Russian dishes with traditional Portuguese flavours.
Pelmeni are Russian home-style stuffed fresh pasta dumplings — filled with meat or vegetables and served with butter, sour cream or broth, they a staple of the Russian dinner table. Similarly, Portuguese cuisine uses humble ingredients like salt cod, pork and potatoes to great effect, which makes it a perfect match for this fusion menu.
