Hundreds of years ago, women in Siberia and Northern
Russia would prepare thousands of dumplings to feed
their family through the long, cold winter, storing them
frozen outdoors in unheated sheds and barns until they
were ready to be cooked. Today, Popkoff’s is keeping that
tradition alive with its domestically produced line of frozen, all-natural Pelmeni and Vareniki—authentic Russian
dumplings filled with meat, vegetables or cheese.
Similar to tortellini, Pelmeni are available with chicken,
farmer’s cheese or beef fillings. Vareniki are comparable
to crescent-shaped ravioli, and are filled with potato and
onion or cabbage and carrot. Traditionally, Pelmeni and
Vareniki are boiled, sautéed with butter, and topped with
dill, sage, rosemary or caramelized onions and a dollop of
sour cream, but they can also be used in dozens of other
creative dishes, say officials for the North Hollywood,
Both Pelmeni and Vareniki are packaged in 10-ounce
trays with a suggested retail price of $5.99.
“Not only do we pride ourselves on keeping these traditional recipes of Eastern Europe alive, but we have gone
to great lengths to make them with only the best ingredients,” says Alex Meseonznik, president of Popkoff’s. “You’ll
never find a long list of unpronounceable ingredients
listed in our products—just common ingredients your
grandmother would have used.”
