Kondopoga Things to Do: 6 reviews and 9 photos


An exclusive Russian original tasty recipe.
Blini is a Russian traditional dish. The making was a real sacred mystery and people told fortunes on the dough and kept their recipes secret. The first Blinis were put on the window-sills for poor people and pilgrims. They are baked in a great quantity for holidays and foreigners are often surprised at how many Bliny Russians can eat!

Really something i suggest to try, you will not regret it, delicious, inviting and something you will not stop to eat.

You can eat them with marmelade, sour cream, chocolate, etc...
The most popular Blinis were made from buckwheat flour and good Blinis must be very, very thin. The thinner Blinis are, the better the cook's skill is.

Here's a website that will give you the recipe:
