Blini —a Russian delight

Last night I ventured out and found a nice cafe and tried Blini

A crepe with different fillings —-on my savoury one a large slice of salmon and dollop of sour cream

After filling in on crepe they fold all four sides to form a parcel then lightly cook

Sweet one same procedure but filled with cooked apple chunks and a caramel sauce

They were definitely worth another try later in my Russian adventure

I thought blini were little, like a small pikelet size, and only for savoury toppings. Didn’t realise they could be large too. I like the sound of the sweet apple one with caramel sauce...

I often enjoy these, at Caviar House on Piccadilly, in London - goes well with their Champagne, or even their Meursaults.

Enjoy,

Hunt
