... in London with the same idea as myself of escaping a lonely London Christmas, and experiencing a new culture in the process. The meal was my first introduction to Ukrainian/Russian cuisine; I tried the Borscht, a beetroot and pork soup for starters and Pierogi dumplings for mains. I would soon learn that that Russian’s love a bit of sour cream as both courses were served with it, actually come to think of it everybody’s food was regardless of the choice. The walk ...
