Pancakes—you think you know ’em. That is, until you realize that the ones we’re familiar with (think Pancake House) are just one way of making them. Different regions in the world have their style of pancakes, from Japan’s okonomiyakito Greece’s tiganites.
Blintz twice if you think this is good.
On this episode of What is Dish?, we challenge our chef to zero in her pancake knowledge on Eastern Europe to make cheese blintzes. Blintzes are traditional Jewish pancakes. They’re similar in thickness to crepes, but are rolled into cigar shapes. Blintzes are also typically filled with farmer’s cheese and fruits.
To our delight, this one proved itself a hard one for Kimmie. That is, until about the last 10 minutes, when she shifted her guess because the dish started tasting familiar. (If you haven’t spoiled it for yourself yet, here’s your warning.) Yup, she guessed it right. Again.
Though, she did make a few mistakes here and there, e.g. mixing the sour cream with the ricotta cheese, making the batter too thick, and steaming the pancakes instead of frying. But whatever, she got it. And we have to say, her filling was even better than the original recipe. Guys—if you have any What is Dish? suggestions, let us know! Please, we really want to beat Kimmie already.
