Russian department hosts Pelmeni Fest

BY MARYA JUCEWICZ '17

Students and their families joined Russian Club and the Russian department in making and eating pelmeni, or traditional Russian dumplings, Friday Oct. 21 in the Betty Shabazz House. According to the School of Russian and Asian Studies, the word “pelmeni” may come from a Siberian word meaning “bread-ear,” a reference to the ear-like shape of the dumplings, which are made from boiled, unleavened dough.
