"I'm half Russian and my dad occasionally made these kinds of dumplings for me growing up. They aren't fancy, but they're the closest thing I get to comfort food. I always get the pelmeni with chicken, which is small, handmade stuffed ravioli, but the vareniki with sour cherries and cream is my choice for dessert. You must have them both! Make sure to bring your own bottle of vodka."
